When doing a pedal grind should you grind with the pedal facing back or facing forward? I was just wondering which was is the most proper to do!

Ok thanks.

My friend said the only proper way to do them is with the back foot. you do slide better/further with the back foot I have noticed, yet I have to go to the ledge goofy footed which feels awkward.

i do them with my rear foot. if you have JC's just take out the pins of one side of the pedal you grind on. I've been grinding on mine off and on for like 6months and they are still in pretty good shape just worn down on the grind side, but not going to break any time soon.

if you use the rear foot you can use it almost like a rear peg. either way works

i went out a tried it both ways today. when i did them with my rear foot i just rode switch footed and did it that way so it was still on the same side. it worked better for me because i could control my weight better and it slid nicer. thats just how it went for me and i wasnt doing all out pedal slides down ledges either...

Do what ever side feels most comfy.

rear foot on your opposite (to grinding)side is typical for ledges.
