    Question Starting out, canít decide between goofy or regular

    When I was young I used to push mongo with my right foot, now Iím getting back into skating, and if I move my right foot up and push normally, Iíll be skating goofy, but I canít turn and I have shit balance, but if I put my left foot at the front, I can turn and have good balance but Iím bad at pushing, Should I stay with goofy and learn balance and turning, or go with regular and learn to push?

    Sounds like you should skate regular. Pushing will come natural enough after a while, just stick with it.

    Thanks, although I havenít learnt to Ollie yet, the motion feels more comfortable when riding goofy, should I still stick to regular?

    I think it is worth using whatever stance you have the easiest balancing with.
