I think you mean centered stance.
and no it wouldn't mess it up, no matter what you set your stance at.

The reference stance on a directional board is almost setback a few inches.  Moving forward to the center might not be optimal by some engineering standards but you gotta do what feels best.  Being more centered will definitely make it easier to ride switch.

i r confused...

i think the most important aspect of your stance is the mental part of it... if you feel it works better for you than keep that stance...
confidence is half the game

A directional board may be designed to ride "best" in one direction but is definitely capable of riding both directions.  The flex pattern of a directional board will mean the tail is probably stiffer than the nose so it may feel a bit different ollie-ing one direction vs another.  But no damage will be done to the board.

Even on flexy boards, the riders weight will have virtually no effect on the curvature of the board. On a stiff board, like your custom X, your weight/stance will have no impact.

If your gonna be learning switch then you should center your stance as much as possible and if you want, you could also run more of an angle on the back binding.

This is a support community so there are no nonsense questions!  Tell your friend to be careful with his stance setting because then your board might go reverse camber on him!  LOLLOLj/k

Also, you can set your bindings opposite of what you normally do.  Goofy -> regular or regular -> Goofy
Did you google it?
