Regular on a longboard, goofy on snowboard
 
Okay, so i've come across kind of a problem. So when i ride a longboard/skateboard i tend to be regular... cause my right foot is the stronger leg. but when it comes to snowboarding, my stance is goofy! when i tried regular, i tried toeside and i just fell flat. i can carve now, but when i try to do regular stance it feels SO uncomfortable! It makes it harder for me to do tricks, so instead of an ollie, i usually go for the nollie. will this affect how i do my tricks and stuff? Please give me tips and any advice you can to help :(

I ride just the opposite. Goofy long board and regular snowboard. Ollie is very important for tricks so just keep on practicing.

I'm goofy on skateboard (no mongo) and regular on snowboard. I have the same problem. My ollies suck badly so I do nollies (which aren't great either :laugh:).

W/E... I don't do park so work on it slowly. Til then, I'll just keep jumping off stuff.
