For me, boot in the middle doesn't make anything easier. I put my foot against the binding and carve like I would with my foot strapped in.
Isn't it pretty well known narrower stance easier turning?

You carve with one foot not strapped in? Video or I call bullshit.

don't carve but regularly practice linking slow turns (straight bombing is easier) going 50-150 yards 1 footy on a green...its a damm good skill to have....saves a ton of energy

How about you try it yourself?

Fyi, I'm not creating trenches. I get off a lift, front foot strapped in, back foot up against the inside of the back binding. A little more weight towards the front, then I go either on my heal edge or toe edge and I start going in either direction towards a trail or navigating through people.

If you still need a video to understand this, PM me. If you do understand it.. now try the same thing but with your foot in the middle. I'll be surprised if it's easier for you.. but hell, maybe it is. It's definitely not for me or anyone else I know. Do you notice more people with their back foot against the inside of their back binding or with their foot in the middle?

Well, you got the idea. It sounds like you were trying to help. Trying to help, not a dick by definition.

See! Now I actually started doing better skating when I stopped putting so much weight towards the front of the board. I was constantly spinning front/backside around the nose of my board tring to "1footy" around the flats with my weight forward.

It's really not that hard to carve down a hill with only one foot strapped in. Like OP said, I'm not laying trenches or anything, but I can link turns down the mountain at a pretty quick pace with one foot if I need to.

It's not semantics. It means something else entirely.
