This term refers to riding a snowboard in the opposite direction, and is borrowed from skateboarding. If a regular footer (left foot forward) puts their right foot forward to ride goofy, but retains the same stance and foot position, they are riding fakie.

When riding fakie, a great number of manouvers can be executed in the same way as one's natural stance; an ollie for instance, can be done with the exact same movements, but the direction will be reversed, with the back foot lifting and the front foot pushing down.
