ok... i´m a righty, i write with my right hand, kick soccer balls with my right foot, and basically do everything with my right side.

i´ve heard that right people ride right foot forward, but, i ride left foot forward, spin to the right and do every thing as if i were left footed. I have a lot of trouble fakie-ing and put pressure with my right foot (this one ending forward, making me unable to perform half cabs), and lifting back end on 360 ( not to mention that i sometimes fail bunny hopping high).

when i try out whipping my bike i find it easier to spin it counter clock wise and stuff like that. But I find it impossible to ride right foot forward. i have heard things like these are due to the fact that my brain is used to being right and therefore find it easier to do some stuff righties would do it.

sorry if you don't understand i tried explaining as exact as posible, and i know what goofy footed is. but I don't see this as being goofy footed.

any help?

What are you asking? You ride left foot forward. I'm the same way. There's really nothing to explain ride howevers comfortable.

im soo confused, i think riding left foot foward or right foot foward is just dependant on the way you learned to ride a bike and feal comfotable riding, not what hand you find predominant lol im right foot foward, and i do some tricks fuckfooted ie. barspins(in a manual lol i suck), turndowns, and some times 180's depending on which way i feal like riding

I'm right handed, ride left foot forward. I perform just fine like that. Actually, I have tons of fun how I am. There aren't any tricks I can't try due to my preferences. Some people call it being fuck footed or dick footed... there really isn't anything to call it. It's freestyle BMX, ride how you like.

If you're having trouble, my advice is to work at it. Those little annoying habits are what your body does automatically, because that's just what it's used to. You have to practice breaking those habits. Keep riding. Training yourself is the only way to get past it. It's not hard at all, but it will take time. Be patient dude.

I dont think whatever hand you write with and stuff has to do with BMX haha some people ride different, i think it is cooler when people can ride "goofy" footed, it doesnt really matter though. i throw the bars the wrong way. I do everything else the right way though so its whatever.

I'm right handed, left foot forward, spin to the right, grind on the left, and am more comfortable fakieing to the left. That's just how i learned things and that's how i'll be. It doesn't really matter.

Just ride. Adjust and do what's comfortable. It's called freestyle for a reason, if your having fun then you are doing it right.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Most right handers are left footers because you use the right to scoop
