I haven't tried it myself but can tell you what I have heard from Mischa from www.kitejunkie.com
who tried it last days and has it in his shop:
Yes it seem, apart from most things which look fine to perfect, that Nobile misses to give the possibility
- of a middle strap
- to have different strap positioning on the board and so also the possibility to narrow or broad
- and as I understood also the straps themself seems to by pretty "prototype-style" maybe even not size able
- another little problem for people with very big foot could be that the heel will have to stay on the angled corner of the pad.
So talking about straps in general we hope that nobile will upgrade the named problems, which for sure needn't be a problem for everybody, especially not for people not using straps at all. But as the foil is actual with its first wing very much addressed to beginner, we would not recommend any beginner to use the straps, until he is able to estimate himself, if they are well shaped for his foot or not.
As said the rest looks great from concept, shape to quality.
