I have the *exact* issue. I usually have no issue standing and gliding forward, it is when I have to turn.. omg... i have no idea how to control the board with just one foot.

I ride goofy, and was told sit on the left side of the chair. My first fear is hitting the left side of my board onto those poles (happened on rental and now I'm paranoid). Then getting off, if i'm by myself, I'm all good, I can do a heel side turn usually with just my front foot and leave my rear foot on my board. But if I have to do a toe turn, I almost always fall down. If i ride with others, I'm always on the left which means, I almost always have to turn left in order to avoid running into them....

I may try to hang my toe out a little and drag it. I think I tried that and jerked me and I fell...
