Pro rider stance observation
 
So I was watching the newest edit on shredbots.com and I couldn't help but notice that Torstein seemed to have more board area from his back binding to his tail than his front binding to his nose (from my understanding he is a regular footed rider). I wonder if by doing this it makes his switch tricks feel more natural since he would be riding a setback stance when he is switch. Anyone have any insight?

he's a pro.

You can figure that out from the video?

The guy prob board better then me with only one foot strap in.

pros can ride pretty much anything they want and still be pros. I always like to give my board to my buddy who thinks he cant ride cuz his board sucks. then he just go crashing cuz I always keep my board waxed lol.:giggle:

I have a friend who I lend my setup to sometimes so that I can see what it's capable of, even his switch is much faster than my regular.

now I am motivated to ride switch as good as my regular. is it achievable? I think so!

you don't need symmetrical to ride switch.

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.
