I have some questions regarding the footstraps on the zeeko pocket air in combination with the std spitfire; do you prefer the inline 2 straps instead of 3 straps in V? And where are they positioned?3InletsWindsports wrote: ↑Tue Jun 18, 2019 5:37 amI moved from the Zeeko Black&White to the Std Spitfire
The main difference using the Zeeko Pocket Air board was that with straps in the two inline positions I had only used the front strap and was slowly moving it back , my rear foot was always in front of rear strap. On going to Spitfire this stance made pitch control very hard. But putting back foot in strap pretty much solved the problem.
The XLW and XXLW wings are easier but jumps are best and bigger waves on the STD wings
You can’t use the Spitfire mount plate with XXLW or jump the XXLW.
Note the same strap position is fine on all Spitfire and Bullet and Blaster foils on my Pocket Air which has only one set of inserts for mounting foil.

I only started foiling 2 weeks ago with a borrowed North combo on a 65cm mast. Conditions where quite ideal for learning with flat seas and 15 knots and I was able to get up on the North in the first 15 minutes and was able to do flying gybes after an hour. Had a total of 3 sessions and really enjoyed learning and experiencing something new!
I use a Std Spitfire mast on my Std wing Spitfire but a Windfoil mast on my XXLW and don’t notice anything about board attitude.
your front straps are in the wrong position if it is 75% of the weight on the front foot.Sgallian wrote: ↑Fri Aug 23, 2019 2:14 pm
I use the Nobile Split Foil 2019 for the board, just enough volume, with V straps on the front, no straps on rear, because I feel safer this way, and in any case, it looks like the back foot would be too far behind if I put the straps.
But what surprised me is that I still feel that 75% of the weight should be on the front foot, not really that different from the usual foils, so a bit disappointed by that: maybe I should try with another board with US rails and/or multiple positions for the straps, would that help in this regard? Also, looked a bit roll-sensitive, I feel like it would be better with a center front strap.
And yes, definitely need to tighten those straps...
