Heel toe question

Hey guys, I was just wondering how you do heel toe without your heel on the foot board.

Thanks

It is the same as normal heal toe, what ever side of the foot board feels better is the only question. I like the innter of the foot board so it is closer to my snare. Some people say that it is easier to do it off the foot board. I agree, the only problem is that it takes longer to adjust to that possision.

Heel-toe is a misleading name for the technique in the first place. It is not your actual heel that produces the first stroke - it's the motion of dropping your foot almost flat against the board, then pivoting up onto your toes for a second stroke. The stroke is produced from the middle of your foot, more from the ball than your actual heel.

Anybody with any size foot can do heel-toe - this has been said at least a million times.

Yeah but I take off my whole foot when I do heel toe and hit the footboard with the heel first, will I have to adjust my technique to do it off of the footboard?
