rather unrelated but a good way to tell which foot you'll put forward:
stand with your back to a person (they cant be expecting it) and push them gently in the back so they take a step. the foot they step with is there dominante forr, therfore there sliding foot. This is how you tell which foot a noob wake/snowboarder puts forword so i figgured its semi relavent...
When I started skateboarding, goofy just always felt more natural to me and I'm assuming that is why sliding right foot forward/spinning left feels more natural to me now, but I have no clue why I always skated goofy.
I know that when you are still an infant they can determine which will be your dominant hand by having you stand up and slowly leaning you forward until you take a step, and based on which foot you use they can figure it out, but I am unsure what it is in the human genome that causes the dominance. Good question though.
i spin left, and i'm right-handed. i guess it's so because when you spin left, the arm wich needs more power for doing spinning movements is the right one, and if you always write, play tennis, basketball or whatever with your right arm, then of course the right arm is stronger. therefor its stronger for doing the spin and it gives you more balance?
so i guess its similiar with your feet
i spin left, go on ride on rails/boxes left foot forward, and urban rails right foot forward, doesnt make alot of sense...
