It is totally normal for most people to always ride primary with a higher level of proficiency than switch. Even AASI recognizes this in the exam process. Your switch riding tasks are not graded to same standards as your primary riding tasks.

So while everyone should be able to ride competently switch, don't feel frustrated because you never feel as comfortable or have more difficulty riding very challenging terrain. I am working on riding black bumps switch and I find this agonizingly difficult. The only thing I have found more difficult is riding the Super Pipe switch.
is a directional twin board close to true? or does it effect my switch riding a lot
