Advice on centering stance

Hello guys!

This is my first post, so first of all, I would like to thank all of you for the time you dedicate to help out people that at a certain point come across a question that they can not answer themselves, just like me ^^

So, I would like to know if it is ok to center my stance on a directional twin board. It has a slight offset of 25mm. Here is some more information that could come to your aid when providing an answer.

My setup is as follows:

08/09 FTWO Prime snowboard 154cm, directional twin, positive camber
08/09 Burton Custom Bindings
08/09 Burton Moto Boots

It is my first snowboard, been riding it since my first day on the slope

I am goofy and ride a +15/-15 stance. I consider myself to be an intermediate to advanced rider, having no problems riding any slope from blue to black, sometimes even going in the woods ^^ Up until this year I didn't give much importance to switch riding and spinning, but this year I decided to improve my snowboarding abilities and kick it up a notch At the moment, after one week of practice, I can ride switch pretty good with my setback stance, can land 180s (FS, BS and half-cabs) both on flat ground and on small features. I have no problem with jumping at high-speed and scoring some easy grabs and I also enjoy carving at high-speed.

I am waiting for your answer! Thank you!

I would suggest against doing that. I would keep it centered with the binding inserts because thats where the center of the effective edge(the part of the edge that actually touches the snow) is going to be. Besides its a directional twin so you should almost already be pretty centered on the board compared to a regular directional board.
