Position of fin grab rails

Postby Macisback » Mon May 12, 2014 2:19 pm

Hi Toby and dear all,

where do you position your grabrails above the fins?

I have seen two versions:

Both grabrails (left/right bent) on the heelside
Both grabrails on the "tail" aka the end of the board where your backfoot of your favorite jumping side is

Thanks!

Is it just personal taste or is there a specific reason for it?
