Well, you see, when you have your left foot on the right pedal, and your right foot on the left pedal you may have some trouble getting your back wheel off the ground.

That aside, just go with whatever's comfortable when trying to decide which foot to keep forward.

Whichever feels more comfortable is how you will ride for most of your life.

im right foot dominant but i ride left foot forward. i drop in on my left side, i had no idea which way i spin. i air out to my right. and i grind on my left. im very very ***** footed.

i tried switching to right foot forward for a few days but it hard and not normal feeling.

ps. if anyone wants to clarify which way i should be doing things with my left foot forward that'd be nice.

I'm left foot forward, I spin right, I can drop in on both sides but air out right (albeit i'm not that great at it) and I grind left.
