    Question Is it "Wrong" to skate goofy?

    So I went to my local park a few days ago, and I met a few cool people. We were skating, and then they asked why I skated goofy, and I just said "It was how I learned. It just kinda stuck". Then they were saying I skated "Wrong". Is it really "Wrong" to skate goofy?

    Its still kinda funny, because they skated regular and could barely ollie, when i did a gorgeous double heelflip down a 6 set XD

    I never knew there was a "right" way to skate.

    In all seriousness, they were either trollin' or they were incredibly dumb. Nothing wrong with goofy skaters.

    Goofy pride!

    There's no set "right" way to skateboard. They were probably retarded.

    This makes me lulz. From all the people that I have met, for every one regular skater there's one goofy skater.
    Haslam, Daewon, Lizard, Appleyard, and the Gonz skate goofy, there's of course like 100,000 others but I'm just really lazy.

    Skating goofy will get you killed.

    It's a scientific fact that the left shoes shoelace will come untied more often than the right foot. I've had it happen and it sent me flying.

    Skate goofy or die.
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    What Trebor said.

    Goofy makes no difference. Most street skaters are basically trying to be both by learning switch tricks anyway.

    Asking a person why they skate the stance they skate in is like asking them why they write with their right or left hand. It's just what feels natural.

    Nah, they were probs joking and Goofy isn't wrong, but mongo is....
    Kickflips and 360 flips are ****

    We were all off our faces on mushrooms when we recorded Plug In Baby... There was this big field next to the recording studio filled with them. So we ate them all. I don't know what we were doing, but we all ended up naked in a jacuzzi and I went deaf in one ear from falling asleep in the sauna... Matt Bellamy
