I'd say the average rider is better off with a slightly directional snowboard over a true twin.

True twins start to gain the advantage if you do a lot of freestyle and/or ride switch often (or if you're working your way up to doing that).

Honestly, it feels a little bit better doing switch tricks on a true twin, but the difference isn't major and I'm saying this as someone who regularly spins switch 5s and up.

In the end if you get used to spinning/landing switch on a slightly directional but twin-ish shape, you can even end up preferring that feel just due to your muscle memory remembering the feeling.
