Kiteboard boots setting on board

Postby youpibird » Sun Sep 03, 2017 11:29 am

Hi all,

I have some question to set up boots position on the kitesurf board. With my boots(north pop) and board(fone trax 2017),
I am searching for the position which facilitate the edging and jumping.

I am can set the boots closer to either

1. toe side of board
or
2. heelside of board.

Which makes edging and jumping easier? Could you please advice me on this? Thanks in advance

Shoulder width apart. Adjust your duck to what feels comfortable on your knees. I ride all the way in with very little duck. My knees bothering from time to time so I'm most comfortable this way.
