Take a look at Core's Union Comfort or Duotone's Vario straps. Both are super comfy! :thumb:

A Dutchie here with big feet (and sensitive to cold with our North Sea ;-)), so I feel your pain :) Indeed, the old Flysurfer ones are amazing. Currently, I use Lieuwe straps (the non-pro model), which I think are also produced by Yeti and are quite similarly sized.

sorry, but no. that's like a windsurf strap.

I am looking for a kitesurf strap ;-)

But I see you have some in your store...the question is, if they can be set to really big?

That long strap is exactly what I need for my foil, but I can't seem to find it in Europe.. Anyone?

I modified my Naish Apex straps for my size 11.5 width 2E booted feet with the addition of some double sided velcro and cable ties. Effectively extending the velcro that is already there.
But there is hard plastic in the strap ..
