sry... my comment was semi-retarted... Basically saying that if the reference points are moved back a half-inch, then you're at a disadvantage riding switch, because they'd be moved forward a half inch, toward a smaller, stiffer end. Then again, if your binding angles aren't equally ducked, then could it be easier to ride switch on a directional board with bindings setup as like +12/-6, when regular, therefore 6/-12 when switch, as opposed to +9/-9 both ways?
i'm not really sure if that makes any more sense though...

@Outlyr: Setting your stance back, even just the rear foot, is alright. In fact, if you have a positive cambered board, the further you set your stance back, the more float you will have in powder.
@Veazer: To be honest, I don't really understand what you are asking. When centering your stance on a directional board, the best way for me to describe it is that it handles like your riding switch when you are regular. So I guess that would mean it will handle better if you in fact ride switch on that setup? Either way, it makes 0 sense for you to do that.
The Operator is not a directional twin. It is a true directional board. The board's geometry is centered around the reference stance points. For example, the most narrow section of the board will be in the middle of the reference point. The flex pattern will be centered around the reference point. There's other things like where, if any, tech like carbon rods are located.
I don't know the exact technical details or exactly why it rides different. I just know that it does from personal experience and the many, many issues I have heard when people move their stance in this manner.

|1max2nv||I find shoulder width works the best for me. I stand on the board bend my knees and have my arms hang straight down. My hands would touch near the center for my knee caps. I get the best range of motion and still have enough power when I squat down to charge the hill.|

other question: Union binding give you the chance to fine-tune your stance width. Than means that once you put both bindings on even holes (for example, reference point), you can then move each binding independently

Should also these little movements be symmetrical (ie, moving bindings on opposite direction)? Or, once the 2 bindings are on exact holes, I can play with them and move them both on the same direction for example?
thanks a lot in advance

Just wondering what physics/geometry really does have to say on the issue.

|lorcar||I measured it right now, and I have it set at 60.5cm (23.8 inches) which is larger than my shoulder width, while distance from my kneecap to the ground is 55cm. While any guide I read on the web says that for my height (5'11'') it should be 20-21 inches.|

but to be honest, I dont think I did this! did I write I set my stance forward???
