Picture of Pushing off

Here is the picture of what it should look like pushing off.
Always have your dominant foot on the front. Then you will have your other foot on the back and push off with that foot.

You will need to figure out if your stance is regular, or goofy.

The first picture is how to push off. And the second picture is how to push off goofy. The third picture is how to push off regular.

Then there is a position where you stand normal but when you push you push with your front foot.
That is called mongo.

Are you sure that's the right picture. I don't see how you could push off standing like that. Your body should be over the board mostly, with your back foot on the ground. The way you're standing, the front foot is at a bad angle (it should be more parallel) and your back foot is on the wrong side of the board.

I have a dominant left foot and I push goofy. The right way would be to try both feet and stick to the stance that feels more comfortable.
Well said. I have a dominant right foot, and I push goofy, but I land tricks better in a regular stance, so I taught myself to push both ways. Learn how to be adaptable, first.
