Goofy or Regular?

I looked and didn't see a recent thread for this, so I decided to make a poll and figure out how ya'll ride!

Pretty simple, in most scenarios, do you ride Goofy or Regular?


Personally, I ride goofy. Originally, the rental jerks just set me up with a regular stance, but now that I've put some more effort into it I discovered that I'm much more comfortable with a goofy stance. I think it's because I always imitated my neighbor, who rode goofy with skateboards and scooters and whatnot.

Regular. But, now I want to practice goofy and be versatile. I'm ready for more bruising!

Goofy forever. On skateboard, on my snowboard, on any board that I have to stand on. Oh, and when I ride my skateboard, I push Mongo too, so I'm really out there.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Im kinda glad to see the poll is about 50/50. I am just learning and pretty sure i ride goofy and my friend who's teaching me rides goofy but i sorta thought it was less common... hence why its called regular and goofy.

(Time of posting, poll at 22 Goofy/23 Regular)

I'm actually fairly surprised. Usually at resorts I perceive more of a 1:4 (Goofy:Regular) ratio. So not incredibly rare or special, but still not the norm. I remember being really surprised once when everyone on a lift was goofy once.

Course, sucks when you're on the right side of the lift and a regular rider is on the left... oops.

Very true, have done alot of last minute switches as the chairs coming around, lol.

I'm regular, but every now and again after a run I'll unstrap my front foot and ride up to, and off, the lift switch. Makes the day a little more interesting.

Ahh so you guys ride different on your skate board and snow board... Judging by the signs I've read about, I should be goofy, but I seem to be more comfortable regular so that's how I've been riding... Just a newbie though.
