First you need to determine your “stance,” or how you stand. A regular stance is when you put your left foot forward. If you participate in other sports, it might be really easy for you figure out which stance works for you. Most of the time people who skate, surf, or snowboard regular footed (left forward) will also be most comfortable on our electric skateboards like that. If you play baseball and bat left foot forward, or are a right-footed kicker, regular stance is probably your most comfortable stance.
The other option for riding is with the right foot forward. Named after the Disney character “Goofy,” goofy stance is a good fit for boarders used to riding goofy, left-footed kickers, baseball batters who use right foot forward. This is called goofy foot and is a less popular way to ride, sometimes associated with left handedness, but not always.
Choose the stance that you feel most comfortable on the board.
Take a wide stance and bend from the knees to lower your center of gravity. Remember to lean slightly forward on acceleration, and slightly onto your back leg when braking. It’s also important to look where you want to go, not at the ground, just like you would when driving a car
