Default Toe edge turns with back foot not strapped in

This is a question I've been meaning to ask. I'm guessing it's not just me, but when getting off the lift (i.e. back foot not strapped it), I find turning right (I'm a regular rider) much more difficult than turning left. In general, it hasn't been much of an issue, since generally a very gradual turn is all that's required when getting off any of the lifts at my local mountain, but I'm not sure I like having that particular weakness. So, two questions:

1) As with anything, I'm sure more practice will help. Do any of you guys actually practice riding with one foot unstrapped?

2) Any hints for me? I have found that it seems to help if I move the toe of my unstrapped foot further towards the toe edge of the board, and I have gotten better, but not much better.
