Goofy Stance
Simply put, Goofy Stance is riding with your right foot in front. One of the first things you must know when you start surfing is what stance you are. Stance means which foot you will be riding with in front at the nose of your board. There are two different kinds of stances, regular stance and goofy stance. The difference between goofy stance and regular stance is which direction you will be facing. Goofy and Regular riders will be facing opposite directions when riding. It is important to find out your natural stance right away to pick up much faster. Many riders have started out with the wrong stance and realized later on that the control they need of their board comes more naturally facing the other way.
