Backflips or Fakie Crankflips

Hi guys, I've a question about learning backflips (fakie crankflips).

I usually jump with right foot in front and I do crankflips with right foot in front too.

But now I'm trying to learn backflips. They're not so hard to learn but my doubt is: how I have to push the back pedal? With right foot or with left foot?
For me it's simplier with right foot, but in some videos I've seen right-foot riders pushing back with their left foot.


Thanks in advance for helping me and sorry for my english

Bye

If you hop with your right foot forward, do backflips with your right foot forward. If you do them with your opposite foot forward it will be hard to do tricks like hickbackflips because you will be landing switch-footed.

Thanks for the reply.

Infact this was my main doubt: the landing. I have to try so maaaany times because with my right foot backward I can do like two and a half revs, with with my left foot I can do like a quarter rev
