Default First time riding a Rocker board

Hey guys, i learned to ride a little over 10 years ago on a traditional camber board without a lot of tech. It was heavy, stiff and oversized for me...

I recently purchased a 2013 GNU Pickle, i didn't realize how much flex it really has (says 6, but compared to what im used to i feel like its a 2).

anyway, i went out to ride it and at first i think i set my stance way wide, because i could barely initiate my turns. I then moved the front binding a little back giving a stance setback (not sure if this is good on twin tip rocker)...it felt better, but the board is really not damp at all and i feel like im going to catch an edge any second

any tips on riding a rocker board vs a camber board that i should be aware of? or is it all in just riding it and getting used to it?
