I would never recommend this... but people get too hung up on true twin for riding switch (btw, I believe that video was also taken during that guy's second or third season of snowboarding. I don't know about you, but I was a little jealous). I do 180s and ride switch on my powder board, which has 2 inches of setback, and a 20 mm taper in the tail ... it's not ideal, but I can do it. People... if you are having trouble riding switch... it's not the board... it's because you are bad at riding switch.
totally agree...i cant ride switch to save my life! it aint the board!
