While it depends on how you define 'close', no surfer can really ride that
close to how well they do with their preferred stance. If you're old enough,
Simon Law was probably the best at switch relative to his preferred stance
(natural), and while he could get by in challenging waves, and maybe score
points in a con'est for the novelty and difficulty, the pure quality of his
switch surfing was not really that close. Of course there are others, Slater
in particular, who aren't slouches at switch too, but I still think switch ≠
Also, my intuition and relatively limited understanding tell me that due to
nature of the cranks being attached via bearings to the BB, there's no bias in
mass applied front-to-back through the pedals, all mass just goes through the
BB. Side-to-side through the pedals, yes, but front-to-back just results in
turning the cranks. Perhaps others will chime in with some insight.
