The name riding a skateboard with your left foot in the front. This is the foot-position opposite of goofy foot.

This term is also applied to snowboarding, and occasionally surfing. Theories are that this has something to do with the relative strengths of the legs, or the overall footedness of the rider, i.e. right-footed or left-footed. There was originally some attempt to connect riding style with handedness (right or left), however handedness has been demonstrated to be considerably independent of footedness.

I happen to ride regular-footed, so this node gets a longer write-up than the other one.
