Really? This makes you made? American's created this? Must be why all the specs for boards are in inches...oh wait.

Why the hell would a skater mention angles? Your feet are constantly adjusting on the board. And it makes perfect sense to be the downhill orientation. As you said, when you ride switch it changes...but switch isn't your normal so you would never state it in those terms.

The reference should either be the human body or the board, not the direction of the slope. Who created such a system, an American, who likes 12 inches in a foot ,four quarts in a gallon. It is by design to try and keep out foreign competition who can't figure out our measuring system? But it is also a sport that uses the technical term " goofy " for riding with your right foot down hill. What can I expect. Sure it was born from skate boarding out of LA, but no skate boarder ever said I ride +15 0 , or maybe they do, I don't follow the scene.
your stance doesn't change when you ride switch, you still ride +15/-12. Stance is only in relation to the front and rear of the board. Why does it matter if we call duck +15/-15 or +15/+15? Its all relative to 0

Hey,.. you were honest! You called it a "Rant!" ...and "Rant" it was!!! No harm, no Foul! ...a little "AR?" Maybe?
(...I get pissed off at people who use "Supposubly" instead of SupposeDly!!! Difference is I won't be posting a Rant on it!!)
