tonyisnowhere Thanks! Great advice all! I do like how the board rides now but I was just curious. I am coming from an Arbor Cascade (like Element RX rocker) So the stance was more centered and the rocker was super forgiving. I wanted to improve my riding get more speed and carve better so that is why I went to the CX.

thanks again all!

Treegreen Chomps is right. It'll be a bit weird a first since the tail will look different to you than the nose (since you're setback), but you'll adjust. You'll probably find the stiffness is different in terms of initiating your turns as well, but just stick with it.

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!
