I'm going to say it's all personal preference. In general, while it may not be optimal, you will eventually adjust. My main board is a directional twin, with a setback of 15. Obviously riding switch will give different dynamics, but I've learned, adjusted, and through repetitive muscle memory, am getting proficient at switch on this board. You will prolly not get the most out of your skills and what the board is meant for, but's not like it's a big no no IMO.
