Ive started doing that because my toe side is stronger than my heel side so riding more heel side gives me more leverage on that edge.

A lot of the pros have non-symmetrical angles.

white is like back foot 0 and front like 12/15/18?

toro is like 9 -6

stevens is like 18-9

rice is 18-9
I spent my first 8 years riding with 15 / 0.
After that it was a bunch of minor changes.
12/-12
15/-9
12/-9
12/-6 is where I sit today.
