Symetrical twin stance question

I currently ride a lib-tech skate banana. My current stance is set as:

Is it strange to ride a twin board in the "set-back" stance I have it at now? It's extremely comfortable and I set my last board up the same. Is the board not meant to be stanced like this?

Thanks guys.

some will say that the board was designed as twin and therefore needs to be mounted as one. I disagree, depending on how you ride and how you weight the board you can set your stance any way that works for you, or adapt your style to fit the board. I too feel comfortable i little further back then centered on most boards. I feel it allows me to lean forward more in carves and not have to lean back as much in powpow. I mostly ride directional boards, as they fit my style (more aggressive and looking for pow to slash), but when on a true twin i like a little extra nose. If you spend most your time spinning, riding switch, on groomed runs then give the true twin stance a shot.

a twin board doesnt mean that you haaaavvvveee to have everything centered. it just means that the flex, shape and dimensions are all the same on both the tip and tail.

anything else as far as how you set up your setback or angles is all rider preference

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
