Default Riding switch (Directional vs True Twin)

So last year I made it a point to start learning how to ride switch.

I was mostly riding my Never Summer SL which is a directional board. At first I had a ton of trouble with it, but I eventually got the hang of it and managed to somewhat link turns while going down easy runs. Even though I could link my turns my tail would often just whip out forcing me into skidded turns. Just all around kinda squirrely.

Well 2 days ago I got to strap in to my new Signal Flat Park which is a true twin... and hoooooolyyyyyy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

It's like someone turned on a light switch and I magically was able to ride switch CLEAN. Turning didn't feel touchy at all and the board reacted very smoothly like it would when I ride regular.

Am I crazy or is this the difference between the sidecuts of a directional twin and true twin board at work?
