Default Evo riding style vs. Acid

In the quote below, you indicate a more vertical evo style of riding to which one would adapt. When switching back and forth between the two types of boards, what adjustments does the rider make--ignoring for the moment that the body does a lot of this automatically, once learned?

(QUOTE:

So, the next step is the EVO 70. That shape is more drivey and "high wind oriented", so it still handles 3.5 sailing surprisingly good once you're use to the shape. The EVO 70 is in fact my fav EVO (I'm 68kg). I would say it handles long bottom turns and fast cutbacks even for a lightweight like me. I would even say it does this in a very natural way, especially regarding the bottom turn part. BUT, it will probably take a bit of time to tune your style to this type of sailing on the EVO 70. Vertical and pocket style riding comes super naturally on this board and for the lower part of your wind range it will definitely be spot on.)
