Default 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?

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.

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.

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.
