Goofy Snowboard Stances—What’s the Deal?

Kaitlyn Farrington rides goofy, here's what that means

When Sochi gold medalist Kaitlyn Farrington interviewed with David Letterman last night, one of the opening questions was about her snowboarding stance. She explained that she rode with her right foot forward and that was considered “goofy.” He asked why it was called goofy and she (and presumably most people watching the interview) didn’t know how the stance got its name.

We found the answer to that question, among other stance info, in the form of an infographic via MPORA. If you’re curious about why your stance is goofy (or regular), or if you want to know which stance your favorite pro rides, take a look at the infographic below.
