Isn't 2 front straps, no rear the most common?

1 front foot hook best of all worlds and flexibility plus easy to spot a low volume board in chop.

Not where I fly.
Of course racers use 3 straps as well as most jumpers.
Lets see what poll uncovers if enough votes.

I think you should allow/change so several choices can be made, as many ride strapless and strapped on different days.

I ride strapless, as do most other locals here.

If I was going to ride with straps, I’d run a race-style three strap setup.

So do I, strapless a couple of hundred times per year, and then a handful of times per year max, with two frontstraps and one rear strap for jumping and fun transitions, on very very rare occasions.

In this poll I have chosen two frontstraps and one rear eventhough only two percent of the times, just so it wont be all strapless in the poll, now I can only choose one.

Around here it is mixed, many ride with three straps, mostly racers, and those who want to jump.
Some ride strapless, and some mix depending on the day, whether they want to jump or ride waves (straps or strapless that is).

Mostly beginners and intermediates ride with one or two front straps only, and no rear strap - but when they get better they either ditch the straps altogether, or go with three straps.

I have never ever seen a hook around here anywhere - it is not strapped for jumping, neither strapless and free, I think that is why :roll:
