I ride Goofy as well, and I'm right footed... I just find it more comfortable to look to the right, than to look the left (neck problems from years ago)...

You watch where you're going? Shit knew I was doing something wrong!

That guy is an idiot.

Unkept Porpoise If you skateboard or do any other board sport it should be the same. I have found my golf and baseball swing is the same as my stance as well.

SoCalSoul The slide technique is interesting.

In my case, I slide on wood flooring with my right foot forward...and most of my weight on my left foot in the back.

I ride regular stance on a snowboard with more weight on my left foot to initiate turns.

So if one were to use the sliding method, maybe keep an eye on which leg supports the most weight?

Soul06 Another one here for the Sliding method. That is a much better way to decide

I never thought the kicking method for picking a foot even made sense. If you kick with your right foot then, as it seems to me, that right foot is what I call your "control foot". Its the foot you use to determine direction. That left foot is your stability. So put to a snowboard, the right foot would go front as its your steering wheel and the left you stability. Thats how I would imagine the "Kicking method" SHOULD be explained.

corneilli I'm a weirdo, I ride goofy, right is my kicking foot, I slide on a wood floor with my right foot first but yet I skateboard with my left foot in front When I picked up snowboarding I switched like every day, and after two days I felt like right was more natural for sliding.

That's why I would recommend the sliding on a wood floor method, because I skate with my left foot in front because I have more strength in my right foot for giving me speed, giving me speed with my left foot just feels awkard as hell, so maybe the 'try skating' method isn't for everyone
