Unless you are racing or want to jump high, then you don't really need the straps. Having a nice W-Concave on the deck of whatever board you want to put your foil on does help though.andrepen wrote:Hello kiters,
I just learned foiling.
I come from kitewave background.
I am not against straps at all, I use them most of the time when I am riding.
But for the foiling, I started with only the front strap, like people on this forum adviced me to.
And I use only the front strap until now.
Now, when I am foiling, I feel that I dont touch the strap at all, except when I water start.
Hydrofoiling, there are no bumps, and the board keep glued to my feet. My front foot is inside the strap (quite loose), but I see that it doesnt touch the strap.
Do the straps really help at any situation at hydrofoiling?
