I have to try this with my foiling girlfriend. Are you hooking to the rear handle pass strap? Possible to go without dual footstraps?

Yes, and yes. I use the extra straps because we jump and do rotations.

My GF has never kited, but she loves the tandem foiling.

Yes you don't need the extra footstraps if well harnessed?

I take off and ride without her in the straps occasionally, but I wouldn't feel comfortable jumping without her in them.
