I know you've been riding a lot longer than I have Suburban, but I have to disagree. Though I also liked riding with a forward stance because aggressive riding is more fun, I'd say that it does inhibit switch riding. My forward ankle killed after a couple of switch runs. Changing to a 27/-6 duck stance was like night and day. It didn't make switch riding any easier/more natural, but it was a helluva lot less painful.
