I will take any and all advice. thanks!

Nope!! Don't do it! You can learn to ride that board switch with the setback stance. Centering the bindings on a set back board will F" you all up!

I have an Arbor Roundhouse with a 2 inch setback & It took a little doing and at least one lesson, but I ride it switch just fine! The boards geometry is designed to work with the setback stance, regular or switch!
