Hi

Could be interesting to make a poll and see how many kitesurfers (of ALL kinds) that are natural regular or goofy footed when surfing.

Regular is when you ride the best and most natural, with your left foot forward.
Goofy is when you ride the best and most natural, with your right foot forward.

I know there are some who are mixed, meaning they kick to a football with the "other" foot, and ride a skateboard differently, and then kitesurf the opposite.

But let us just keep it simple and say you have to choose between one or another, what you feel is your best and most natural side when kitesurfing - no matter what board you are riding 8)

Kindly, Peter Frank

To me regular is right foot back (me).....and goofy is left foot back :wink:

Must be different i guess ......at higher latitudes :lol:

I refer to back foot/leg.....because that's the one that "needs rest" once in a while....
....and that is why it is sooooo important to learn to jibe those directional surfboards :thumb:

Tough question :-) I am 100% regular on a snowboard but usually prefer goofy when kiting... although on some days regular feels more natural. I really dont understand it, even now, when I try to imagine which position I ride in, goofy feels so unnatural.. but I ride&jump much better this way so I must be a goofy kiter I guess.
