okay i think I'm doing something wrong because i skateboard with my right foot back and i can't do it with my left foot back, but when i wakeboard and wakeskate i can can really only ride with my left foot back and not my right. does anybody know whats going on?

i have the same problem. its cuz you were probably taught to ride the opposite way you should. my sister told my brother and i that we HAVE to go right foot forwards. we were all in elementary school then so we did what we were told. now that i've been doing it that way for ten years, its impossible to go back. wakeskating for me is almost a waste of time...it sucks.

well when you wakeboard/snowboard your dominant foot is in the back....when your skateboarding your dominant foot is in the front...so if you skate with your right foot forward, then you wakeboard/snowboard with your right foot in the back...so no your not doing anything wrong

there is no right or wrong way, I ride goofy for any board sport.. it's all about what feels most natural
