More On Skateboarding:
To Start with, A skateboard is propelled by pushing with one foot while the other remains on the board, or by pumping one’s legs in structures such as a bowl or half pipe. A skateboard can also be used by simply standing on the deck while on a downward slope and allowing gravity to propel the board and rider. If the rider positions their right foot forward, he or she is said to ride “goofy;” if the rider positions their left foot forward, he or she is said to ride “regular. Also” If the rider is normally regular but chooses to ride goofy, hence he or she is said to be riding in “switch,” and vice versa. Also A skater is typically more comfortable pushing with their back foot; choosing to push with the front foot is commonly referred to as riding “mongo.”
