I haven't tried it in heels (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) but I think I'm more comfortable leading left, and I'm regular.

Well no judgement if you change your story, Donutz...haha! Although I wouldn't advise walking downstairs in heels for this experiment alone.

Yeah so, so far 2 for 2 in stance and stairs.

There might be something to my observation..

I like how you are counting Dontuz in heels I have never nor never will wear heels so I stick to the push test. I lead walking up/down stairs with my right foot, I"m right handed too not sure that matters though

Haha no, the stairs test need not be done in heels.

And slyder, aren't you goofy?

Dont try and fix it, if you feel comfortable going either foot forward, then just continue riding like that, in the long run it will make a better rider.

Only after a beer or two.

I was wondering why you needed heels to do the stair test

Yes I ride goofy, I thought the test was 1st foot on stair is front foot, much like the slide test. Slide on ice what ever foot is 1st goes to front of board, no????

You don't of course. While walking downstairs in heels, one pivots the body more sideways so that the entire foot is on the step, almost parallel. More like a 45 degree angle. Otherwise a stiletto tumbling death could ensue. I assume men noticed this?

But yeah, the down stairs test - even barefoot - would be which foot first. To take it even further, try angling your body at 45 deg so that you're mimicking more of how you'd be on a board, going essentially downhill (the stairs). Or if you're up for it, walk down sideways and see what foot you lead with.

Considering you're goofy and lead with your right foot downstairs, I'm calling that 3 for 3!

I am also waiving any responsibility for anyone who tries the stairs test and crashes.

ME I do both these right footed but I slide on ice/floor right foot in front. I snowboard right foot in front IE goofy.

So the old tests dont' always work but I am that rare odd ball statistic for those tests. Give it a try goofy sometimes it just clicks for you.

Good Luck
I agree with this. I'm left handed dominant but i kick balls with my left foot, i push off with my right on skateboard/scooter so ride regular(left foot forward)
