When you step on a skateboard for the first time, you might notice that standing one way feels more comfortable than the other. There are two ways to stand: you are regular footed if you stand with your left foot forward. If you stand with your right foot forward, like I do, then you goofy footed. There is no wrong way to stand, and one stance is no better than the other. There have been great skateboarders from both stances.
