I just bought a regular old Burton Custom, and set it up for twin stance, and switch is SO much easier than on any directional board I've been on. I would either try centring stance, or try switching bindings 180 degrees (to make a direction board favour switch) before I'd buy a non-camber board.

But I'm a camber lover so I guess that's where that comes from!
