I learned fakies the wrong way

I'm left foot forward and footjam with my right foot, which is normal. I turn my bars to the left when I fakie out, like normal. But when when I fakie out I put pedal pressure with my right foot and not my left like I've seen all over the place.
Is it going to make it difficult to do half cabs and stuff of that sort when I get to that stage?

Why be the same when you can be different?

Learn them the other way. I can half cab like both ways but i'm right foot forward it will be alright i think when you start doing 180's and oppo 180's. Seems kinda complicated the way you are saying it but it's not really that complicated.

You're fuck-footed. Do you grind right? If you notice how goofy-footed and fuck-footed people ride, you can just tell how people are gonna do tricks. And when you say how you pedal pressure, you basically fakie switch-footed. I do to but I learned them with the opposite foot, looks much cleaner but cabs are harder unless you do switch rollouts and cabs which always forces your cranks to give pedal pressure with your non-dominant foot.

You do footjams goofy. But so do I. I also go switch footed out of fakies. But I can Full Cab, with either foot forward, I just prefer it goofy footed. And Footjams are a bitch for me (Footjam Whips and Footjams on Quarters, that is.)

Damn, I never had it that bad. But when I first started doing switch rollouts, I had to slide them a lot and I still do sometimes to this day. It's with my dominant foot cause if I want to make it look clean, it'll force my non-dominant foot and I'll pivot which isn't actually clean but my footing is correct.

I just fakie backwards and get out some how. Don't care how it looks or anything. If you put the time in you can learn any tricks

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.
