It's certainly harder to ride in powder though. Great for switch, not great for every other aspect of riding...
Got it. Thanks.

IMO I wouldn't tinker with it too much or at all, as switch is just a matter of practise, centering a stance on a directional board isn't going to make you learn any easier. It's just going to make your tip & tail the same length, off center your stance with the sidecut and flex pattern of the board...
Got it. Thanks.
