Background: Been prone foiling for 6 years, ride strapped winging and want that extra control prone.
Strap tune- I broke down some gopro footage where i get a shot of my feet to dial in the position. Right now i have them set up like my wing board straps, feet fully in with the strap over the middle of my foot. Strap is homemade armstrong style EVA sandwiching a piece of strap webbing.
Threw straps on yesterday and got a nice runner right off. Front foot popped right in. I fumbled around with the back foot while i pumped around and got it on the 3rd wave or so. Placement was good but i found my back foot felt cooked - prematurely tired from pumping/running.
I took the straps off on the next wave and tried to focus on what was different. Placement was the same, i think the big factor was being able to lift the heel when pumping. I think the strap was too loose and i need something tighter that just the front of my foot is in(windsurfing style) so my heel can lift on the pump.
Anyone feel something similar?
