As for as which foot is first, their method of which foot you kick with is a bad one. A better method would be to have her take a short run and slide across the floor. The foot that naturally goes first is the way she should probably ride a board.

Oh I see, so its just a preference. The way they explained it to encourage that, made me feel like its something different and I wouldnt even know where to start to encourage that...


Oh ok, I will try this and see. Good method, thank you. She seems fine with the left foot forward as thats what she has been doing, but I will check this out and see!

Thank you for your reply.
