First time I tried to ride a longboard I tried left foot forward and it was shaky but worked. Tried right foot forward and ended up on my ass. I figured that was a good indication that I should ride regular.

I can slide with both feet foward as well, it's not hard, I'm more inclined or more natural to slide with my right foot foward, and I'm goofy. Usually if you don't tell the person what you're trying to do to figure out if they're regular or goofy stance, and just have them do it; there's your answer on what kind of stance they should use.

However I've asked a friend before if they imagine they were sliding on a slippery floor, which foot would be forward, he said right, but he ended up being more comfortable with a regular stance.
