    New question here. Survey: Which direction do you whip? Which way do you spin?

    I wonder, is there is a link or pattern between which side riders feel more comfortable whipping and which direction they feel more confident in spinning?

    I whip to my right and feel like it might be easier to spin left/counter-clockwise, but that goes against my usual skate and snow spins to the right/clockwise. Does it have much to do with which foot is forward?

    Reply with your preference with each and let's see if there is a trend.

    I am more comfortable spinning in the same direction as when I used to skateboard. Which is to the left. I do spend a lot of time learning to spin in the opposite direction though to teach myself better balance.

    it definitely depends a lot on your stance (which foot forward). check this out, it starts a little slow in the beginning but gets really really good.

    if you ride left foot forward and right foot back, then spinnin clockwise for 360s is the most natural. and same with whips, clockwise.

    I spin to my right WAY better than my left.

    My whip depends on my direction of flow when I hit the lip. But it is smoother when I whip out to my right
