Default Can I ride my NS SL centred?

Hi,

I know the SL is slightly set back but I was wondering if it would work centring the bindings?
Would it ride like a twin then (evo)?

Thanks
Neil

No the inserts are already centered on the effective edge. You will be center of the board length wise if you do that but you will have a forward stance relative to the effective edge which you most likely dont want.

I've heard that the SL has no directional sidecut. I've also heard that it does have a directional sidecut.

If it has a directional sidecut, no twin riding. If it does, then you can do it.

Not sure about the newer ones but i doubt its changed. The one in my room from 2011 has directional sidecut, dont move your bindings forward.

it has a longer nose than tail and a directional sidecut setback. On mine the inserts are set back 1.5" but the material setback is 0.75" so measure between the center of the binding and tip/tail to determine the right setback
