There are two ways of riding a snowboard within winter slope sports, the "regular" rider who places the left foot in front and the "goofy" rider who places the right foot in front.
If you have doubts about the orientation of your board, use the print as a point of reference. The front of the board will be at the top when the board is vertical and the print will be the right way up.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A GOOFY OR REGULAR RIDER?
Technique n°1 : Gliding movement
When gliding on parquet or tiles, if you naturally place your left foot in front, there is a strong probability that you are a regular rider !
Technique n°2 : The chair
When climbing onto a chair, (without any support) you place your right foot in front, you are probably a goofy rider.
The same principle applies with the stairs, if you use your right foot as the support foot, you are a goofy rider.
Technique n°3 : The scooter
The 3rd technique allows you to spend some fun time with the family and have a little ride on the scooter! Your leading foot when snowboarding will essentially be the same as the leading foot on the scooter.
By way of a summary, you are goofy (right foot in front) if you: glide with the right foot in front, use this foot as the supporting foot when climbing onto a chair or climbing stairs or if this is the leading foot on a scooter. However, these are tips before using your snowboard, if once, you are on the snow and you do not feel at ease, do not hesitate to change.
Testing is up to you!
