I usually have a regular stance but today I was riding about 75% goofy, to be honest I don't have a particular leading foot, both feel the same. So today for some reason I was riding switch all the way down the mountain, is this bad? If so any way to fix it? And another thing is I feel way more comfortable on my heelside egde then toeside, so maybe that has something to do with it. please help?? thanks!
If you usually ride regular and can ride swith without much of a problem then I envy you! Swith is my goal this season and no its not a bad thing if you can do both, in fact it's preferable to know how to do both. Of course with the heelside issue, everyone is more comfortable on their heelside cause it's a natural motion for you much like sitting in a chair. Toeside just takes some balls and falls but you'll eventually be comfortable with it.

I hate you. Gimme your legs.

Seriously though if this isn't a troll post, being ambidextrous in regards to riding a snowboard is a godsend; enjoy it.

Edit: Damn you're serious... ya being comfortable only on heel edge may be the culprit. Sometimes I see beginners doing what looks like LOOOOOOOOOONG falling leaf motions because they haven't gotten used to making the transition to toe edge while carving.
