There is really no rhyme or reason to it. I am right handed and kick right footed but am goofy in skating surfing and snowboarding. A lot of this is passed from parent to child. All my kids are goofy. My best friend all his kids are regular as he is, but there are exceptions to this as well. I have a buddy who is a pro surfer left handed regular and his dad is a right handed goofy. My cousin skates goofy and boards and surfs regular. Its one of life's great mysteries. lol

If it's a board, I ride it goofy. However, when I skate, I push mongo. And for obvious reasons I can't do that on a snowboard. It made skating harder to learn for me on my snowboard, but in the end, I got it, and in getting it, I can now push my skateboard non-mongo if I'm feeling feisty. I'm also very much right handed. Finally, why all the hate on mongo pushers?! Who gives a fuck? As long as you're having fun, it shouldn't matter.

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

I wasnt hating on mongo pushers, i just said thats a totally different kind of weird. its not like i said "FUCK NO I DONT PUSH MONGO, THAT SHIT IS RETARDED, I HATE PEOPLE WHO PUSH MONGO!" It just looks funny is all, and i think i stated earlier that you should ride whatever way feels most comfortable, and im sure thats why you push mongo so how could i hate?

I'm a mongo and have gotten shit from complete strangers just skating round the seawall. Learning slowly to push reg.

To the OP, you have a lucky quirk! You don't push mong and can ride both ways. SICK!

My husband is totally right hand dominant and he is goofy.

So, how about a poll asking if you are regular or goofy - what hand do you write with? Just curious.....
WEll, i write with my right hand. I shoot Righy in hockey (which doesnt mean much) i play racquet sports i use my right hand. Bat righty in baseball, Golf righty, Kick righty.....When i play Hacky sak my right foot does most the hitting LOL...so i feel pretty right side dominant, but i snowboard regular.....anf skate goofy obv....

I am learning to push "normal" too. funny we are all such mongos. hilarious no less. I have only seen about 3 people at the skatepark in 10 years who push mongo, and here we have a gaggle of mongos.

Considering when I was 8-16, I would travel all over my town on my board, mongo works pretty good for me being goofy and right foot dominate.

@JohnnyVolcom5 -- I wasn't calling you out specifically in mentioning the mongo hate, I was just calling it out in general. Look at Grafta's post right below yours. That's the kind of hate I was calling out. It happens at damn near every skate park I ride at. It's retarded and I don't get it. That's all.

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

I think the OP might be broken. I never really skated, played a bit when I was 10 that's about it. I snowboard goofy, right foot forward on slalom waterskis, wakeboard goofy, windsurf goofy.

I just thought about standing on a skateboard with my left foot on it and kicking with my right and I think I just bailed in my head! lol

Try riding switch a lot more, you might just be ambidextrous on a board or something.

Well im sure the people hatin are either jealous because the mongo skater is better then they are, or they are just immature high school kids. Just ignore it and keep skating the way that feels natural to you.

Pushing mongo is not broken, we are just a little strange. There are a couple (maybe 2, ever) pro skaters that do it.
