These all seem like great questions to ask. To be completely honest at first I wasn’t sure what the hype was all about when I first heard of skogging. Mr. Chris Yandall set his board down in front of me years ago and said, “Give it a try.” I pushed a few pushes and he said, “Now push with other leg”. I ate it.
The feeling of “pedidexterious” as Chris coined it was so foreign to me. I skated regular footed for over 30 years. When I moved to SoCal I want to skate for the workout/exercise aspect of it. I have major medical issues that require me to workout my core. Chris showed me the footwork. Push regular foot then back foot (mongo) then repeat. Switch kick to other lead leg using one of many ways. (I use either foot slide back or cross step. All can be seen on the Skogging101 YouTube videos/channel.)
