I wish in my first year I had prioritized riding switch, I am still catching up, it's not a sexy goal but learning switch versions of all tricks as you go along is I think better than getting ahead on your regular foot.
I dunno, freestyle, spins, rails, park etc. and therefore switch is way down on my priority list. My local doesn't even have a park.
Butters and just screwing around would be about the only time I'd care.
