No and if you try your snowboard will burst into flames.

you can ride switch on a board at any angles.

I wanted to know if there was an easier set up for riding switch.

a duck stance is a good stance to ride switch with. So you will be fine. If you you want you can even out your angles a little bit more. dial back the front foot and increase the back foot angle.

I ride switch with 15,-9. It doesn't matter what angle you ride, even foward angles. Its all about practice, practice, practice until it kicks in. Took me about 2 seasons before switch riding clicked in my muscle memory.

Sure, you can, but it would suck. I used to ride a 15/-6 but switched to 15/-12 and then finally to 15/-15 because switch riding sucked with 15/-6. I don't ride switch a whole lot, but it's nice to have a setup that makes it easier when I do. I didn't really notice any negatives when changing it, it actually helped my knees quite a bit.
