your front straps are in the wrong position if it is 75% of the weight on the front foot.

Zeeko give the recommended bootstrap positions relative to the foil mount on their website . . . or used to. From memory, the rear insert for the front strap should be 370mmm ahead of the front foil mount bolt. Hope that helps.
You have indeed a good memory:

Well, don't have the board around now to verify it, but from the pictures on the websites, yes, the straps are indeed a bit too close to the mast (34 cm), that confirms the feeling I had that my front foot should be a bit more forward...
Hope I'll get used to that, as I like the practicality of the splitboard. If not, well I'm sure I could sell it too.

For my friends who are fans of the CANARD setup.

I've ridden the Spitfire wings for about 2 years. Original fast turns and big jumps... With XLW wings during soulful sunset sessions and light winds and pumping into waves. MIXED XLW wing in FRONT and stock backwing for an unforgettable "gourmet" canard experience.

Is all amazing and I'm now moving on to the (expensive and delicate) "all carbon experience" so an selling muy trusty and well cared for (no bottom strikes EVER) Spitfire combo package at a great price! Please PM me for details. Great wind and swell for everyone!

KITE crazy Joe
