Riding switch means riding backwards which is easily performed with a freestyle stance where the feet are pointing nearly perpendicular to the direction of travel. The carving stance where the feet face more in the direction of travel make it more difficult to ride switch since it is harder to look in the reverse direction.
Figure 1 shows a toe side traverse position. Lean to one side and edge the board in a manner similar to a basic turn. Start the turn (Photo 2) and allow a spin out as shown in Photo 3.

As the board assumes the switch position (Photos 4 and 5), keep the upper body facing the original direction of travel. Make sure the center of mass is toward the back of the board to keep it tracking in the switch direction. When ready to resume the regular riding position, shift weight to the front of the board with edging (Photo 6) causing rotation back to the original position.
