Nice vid ! Your back foot looks pretty far forward. Is it not as back foot oriented as people say ?

Nice background!
From that point of view, looks like a weird way of downlooping your kite, catching the bar underhand and all. Obviously works, but looks weird

With an Ozone race bar? I doubt so.

It looks more like it is the other guy on the BRM Cloud.

Bletti,

Is that Shinnster reinforced in any way? How are the straps installed? I have the same one and considering if it's worth converting it to a foilboard. Could you please share the conversion process if possible?

You'll need the special 'foil plate' for the Shinnster by Shinn.
It is a long carbon or aluminium plate which you have to bolt to the underside of your Shinnster to make it stiffer.
Also, you wouldn't be able to mount a foil to the Shinnster without the plate, as the holes won't match.

Regarding the footstraps, the Shinnster is ready for straps, it has inserts.

This is the first iteration of the Shinnster, which does not have board inserts or any holes for the support plate.
