ryannorthcott i'm the same way, except took skateboarding up after snowboarding so tried to ride regular for a bit and almost quit it because i felt so dumb for not being able to push properly. I think it's more natural because i have better balance on my right foot and since that is the lead foot on the skate i could push hard without fear of losing control. i started riding switch on the snowboard only about 3 years ago but picked it up right away and even though i don't ride switch that often i can go just as fast as regular and with the same amount of confidence. coming in switch on jumps is one thing i haven't really delved into yet though.

Now that you mention it, I thought back to the handful of times I was on a surfboard and skateboard. On each, I stood/stepped (respectively) goofy. What's interesting to me anyway is that on both, I never thought about it, just came naturally.

First time on a snowboard, I was set up regular stance and it sucked immensely. Once it occurred to me that I may not hate life as much if I "put my right foot forward" and changed the angles from a very forward stance to more neutral/symmetrical angles, it was all love.

Does this happen with anyone else? or is it just me.
not that uncommon, got a buddy who is just the same. i'm a lefty but can only use righty scissors, that kinda thing

snowklinger Well I wonder if pushing mondo doesn't have something to do with ambidextrousimness, and you don't have to skate enough snowboarding to make it matter, I dunno, I think its fucking weird to not have the same stance across board sports, so I was reaching for sense in this crazy world.

zk0ot so were you going to pursue with the answer to your question? im kind of wondering what the relevance is to how he pushes a skateboard and how he rides a snowboard? or were you just getting to know him?

Nerozor I also skate goofy, but board regular.
I do not push mongo tho.
Its easier to spin when riding goofy for me tho, which is kinda funny, but im not the best switch rider lol.
