Glossary Goofy Stance
Definition: Goofy, Goofy Stance or Goofy-Foot refers to a skateboarder, snowboarder, surfer or wakeboarder riding with his or her left foot in back, toward the tail of the board. Goofy stance gets this name because most people put their left foot forward, which is called regular.

There is no right or wrong way to stand on a skateboard (or snowboard, surfboard, etc.), but most people feel more comfortable riding a skateboard regular, instead of goofy. Not sure which one you feel most comfortable with? Click here to find out.

"Sandra rides her skateboard goofy and I ride regular, which makes it easier to talk to her while skating along next to her."
