Skateboard Goofy but Snowboard Regular
Why do i do this? Started skateboarding when i was 7 or 8 and always rode it goofy. I think this is due to a couple of things. When i push or "skate" it feels sketchy to leave my left foot on the board. Also, if i were to jump off one foot to try to dunk a basketball or something i ALWAYS jump off my left foot. (which is why i think i skate goofy, so my left foot is the foot i "jump" with when i Ollie. Also when i ran track, it felt natural to have my left foot back to push out of the blocks. But i kick with my right foot.
So when i was 10 or so and had already been skateboarding for a couple years, my parents bought me a snowboard for christmas. The snowboarding salesmen told my mother to push me from behind (i didnt know what she was doing)and see what foot i put forward. I put my right foot forward and so they set up the board to be ridden Goofy footed. That new years i went to my cousins and we built a jump to mess around on before going to the slopes the next day. I remember hitting that jump with my right foot forward and doing fine, but when i got to the big hills the next day, trying to turn and balance at high speeds was SOOO sketchy with goofy stance, so we switched my bindings to regular stance and it felt so natural....ive snowboarded regular ever since.
So WHAT THE HECK?? AM i just assbackwards or something? It doesnt really matter i know, you should ride what feels comfortable. But heres the thing, riding Regular feels natural but when i ollie on a snowboard doing it goofy feels more natural and i can get much higher.
Any thoughts?? lol
