Riding with one foot strapped in can help you ride better. When you first learned about snowboarding you had to learn to skate and ride with one foot strapped that being You front foot. This is like that only you will add a technique to the back foot that will help you steer better,get off lifts with ease and total control.
Start off skating with lead foot in and back foot out. Push off and get some speed then when you bring back foot off ground decide what turn to make toe or heel side turn. Place the back foot slightly over the edge you want to turn. This helps to get the edge up. After you master this take it to the lift.
If you are on the left or right side of lift depending on you stance you place back foot over the edge to move away from other riders exiting the lift in the middle you go straight leaving back foot center until your clear riders then shit foot over any edge to stop with control.
