We've had these before... I think it turned out to be 2/3rds Regular, 1/3rd Goofy.

My next door neighbor growing up was left footed and did skateboarding and scooters goofy, so I copied him. Didn't really realize it made much of a difference at the time. But I did do better snowboarding once I switched to goofy after some rental kids had me start out regular.

all my friends used to push with their foot on the back of the board. felt really awkward for me. not sure if it's correct but i pushed off with my left foot up front and back turned into the board to ride regular.

I ride regular on snowboard. I just cruise around on a skateboard and ride goofy on it.

The skateboard issue is weird. I can ride regular on it, but I can't push with my right foot. I have to push with my left. I tried doing mongo, but failed miserably so I just stick with goofy.

I think I developed my goofy thing from riding my plastic board and never seeing anyone ever snowboard before so I did whatever I wanted. Then when I started skating I couldn't ride regular even though I pushed with my right foot. First snowboard I bought was set up for regular and the hardware was stripped from hell which made it difficult. But then when I got my own set up it was amazing how much better I was.
