  • A "left-footed" surfer. A surfing stance with the left foot behind the right when surfing a "right break" (wave curling/collapsing from the right to the left when viewed from the shore). Most surfers are right-handed, meaning they control direction with their right foot, which is placed back toward the tail of the board.
