ok, im not sure if this is because im left footed or not but when i try turndowns i ride left foot forward, whip to the left and turn bars to the left?:eek: i was watching some vids of how to do turndowns and its saying i should be whipping and turning bars to the right if i have my left foot forward. anyone else have this problem?? also if i wanna do tables i would bring the bike up on my left hand side. is my only option to change riding style?

i have a similar problem. i normally(when moto whipping)turn my frame to the left when i should be turning to the right.i turn my bars to the right though as im supposed to.
but for you,you could either learn the right way as i plan to do soon,or you can do like my friend logan does and do opposite turndowns

hmm, it feels more natural for me to do everything on the left side, like turndowns and tables (even though i suck at them) but im left foot forward and if i was to do a 360 over a double id spin to the right. im just gonna have to mess around on saturday and try and learn turndowns whipping out to the right, gonna feel so alien though

if your are left foot forward then usually it works like this:

you throw barspins with left hand
table to the left
turndown to the right
spin to the right
tailwhip to the left

if not, then you are goofy.
but dont worry, i have the worst turndowns in the history of the universe.

If you're left foot forward, you need to kick your frame to the right(so your headtube goes left) and you turn your handlebars to the right
