Goofy is, on the one hand, the lovable comic character we all know and the best friend of Mickey Mouse.
In surfing, however, all the riders are referred to as "Goofy" standing with their left foot forward on the board.
If you are a beginner and you want to know if you are Goofy or Regular, there are several ways to find it out.
Think about which leg is your stronger leg. This is the leg with which you would kick a football, for example, or the leg you use to hit the long jump. It is said that this strong leg belongs to the back of the surfboard.
Another way: Stand with your back to a person and ask them to push you with a short swing. As a rule, the leg swinging forward in the reflex is your front leg on the board.
No matter what the tests described here are, in water the easiest way works. At the latest after the first get-up-take-off attempts, you realize which foot you can easily get forward to the surfboard.
At the foot of the rear leg, the leash is attached later.
