Nit picking night...

Right foot forward is "goofy foot".

The expression originated from board surfing where a goofy footer faces the wave when going left by having the right foot forward. I guess this is goofy beause most goofy footers are left handed which is less common than being right handed. Right handed people tend to board surf left foot forward (regular foot) and are facing the wave when going right. Conversely, a goofy footer has their back to the wave when going right and a regular footer has their back to the wave when going left.

This is one of the few things I have ever written on either of the Hines blogs, after years of participation, that I am unwaveringly certain of...maybe the only thing.

The Big Stick sounds amazing! cheers
