Lets assume were are talking about a regular rider (leads with the left foot)

Both feet strapped in, nose of board under left foot, taveling with the left foot foward nose to tail....riding regular.

Both feet strapped in, nose of board under left foot, taveling with the right foot foward tail to nose....riding fakie.

Rider spins his bindings around to make the board goofy:

Both feet strapped in, nose of board under right foot, taveling with the right foot foward nose to tail.....riding switch.

Both feet strapped in, nose of board under right foot, taveling with the left foot foward tail to nose.....riding switch-fakie.

I think its the same on a skateboard.

does this help or did I just give everyone a headache?
Where things go grey here is some boards are twin tips so technically there is not tail/tip difference unless one is looking at graphics. Unless your riding a directional board, removing and rotating the bindings is a pointless exercise (actually it would be pointless on a directional board unless you were really trying to learn to ride "switch"). Unless you were tooling around on your board and were either riding completely not strapped in or were on a No-Board or snowskate riding "skate" switch is something that usually will not happen on a snowboard. I'm saying this because on a snowboard, if you ride "fakie" you are technically riding backwards on your board making it switch (although not back to either a regular or goofy position). You couldn't ride fakie unless you did in fact reposition your bindings on your board and went in the original direction your board was intended to go in. I mean if you did want to get truly technical we would be riding fakie switch (going backwards on our boards with our feet pointing in the opposite direction), and that is just getting too weird.

switch is just riding switch on a snowboard. im goofy, therefore i lead with my right and anchor/steer with my left- when riding switch its the opposite. when i consider myself riding fakie its the same as switch but the pressure isnt on the anchor but the lead foot. fakie anything on a skateboard starts with pop coming from the front of the board like a nollie. its the same on a snowboard. theres a switch, nollie, and fakie
