OK i was wondering if going up a ramp and coming back down in a differet stance, like switching, is a trick. For me it is, coming down on my weak foot.

People often go backwards in the opposite stance to what they go forwards, due to the fact that this makes 180s easier . . . so if you're gonna go up forwards but come back down backwards without turning/carving, you might switch out your feet at the high-point. Of course it all depends on what you're used to. . . . if you practise it a given way for ages, then of course that way will feel easier for you, whether it's standard or not Smile
