I occasionally like to answer other peoples' questions, and when I solve a difficult problem, I like to share it with the world.

I did find this site before posting the question, it just seemed to lack... research.

Very interesting. I never though of it that way, but if to give "berth" to something means to give it room, then it makes perfect sense that the word "birth" was derived from it, since you're bringing the newborn from an enclosed space to one where it has "berth".

While expert snowboarders have little difficulty alternating between their natural stance and 'switch' - they still very much have a concept of 'goofy' and 'regular' referring to foot they are most comfortable leading - or even simpler, the foot they tend to leave in the binding when they have one foot detached.
