Goofy girls

We were teaching someone (female) to surf and during the process of deciding if they are goofy or regular. The comment was made that most girls ride goofy and most guys ride regular. We thought about it and realized that our experiences matched that pattern.

So my question/survey is of the people you have pulled do you see the same pattern?

I thought the way to figure it out wasting stand face to face and then push them. The foot they put back to catch themselves is their back foot.

Ive always pushed them forward and the one they catch themselves with is their front foot. That's pretty funny if it works from front or back.

Sorry, but what does goofy riding mean? Wrong foot forward? Or wrong side of boat?

I know this is the way of determining front foot of slalom.

I ride skis, skate boards, and surf boards goofy.

Regular is right foot back, goofy is left foot back.

Lefties get no love in the world.

Send a message via AIM to 88 PS190
is there a general acceptance of slalom stance to goofy/non goofy?

Thinking about it, I really don't snowboard or wakeboard, but the times I have I get up right foot back. But I ride a trick ski and slalom right foot forwards.

Is that standard?
