Exclamation hey could you possibly help?

well in 2 weeks i am going snowboarding in castleford for my lessons , right the only thing i'm having problems with is my position on the board.
when i ride a skateboard i am a mongo rider, this means my left foot is always on the back of the board at all times, in snow boarding you have to have the front foot strapped in, my strongest foot is my left, so shall i ride regular or goofy? or shall i try and ask if i can have my backfoot stapped in the board?

Just run and slide along a slippery floor, which ever foot to lead with goes down the hill first.

Set up your board for goofy, same as you would skate. Just get used to having back foot unstrapped and pushing around like that. Mongo skater or not, this doesn't take long to get used to.

seriously, and try to kick the habit of pushing mongo. pushing regular really is 100x more efficient and stable once you get the hang of it.

set up your board centered/twin and then give riding each way a try

It is literally what I did at the beginning of the season last year, my first season. It said I was goofy, and therefore I am.

stand there with your feet together and close your eyes, have your friend shove you from behind, which ever foot you step forward with is your lead foot.


Friends dont let friends push mongo.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Generally is connected to our dominant eye. We tend to look that way. My dominant eye is left...I ride Regular. But the slide method works.

Slide method, push method; they work! You'll know for sure after a day if boarding.
