WTB- Mystic Footstraps (symetrical)

I have had a pair of these for a while now and really like them but they are starting to wear out on the inside- any vendors out there have a new pair (of this older design)?

TIA

Re: NP Surf wetsuit sizing?

Can't speak to other brands and their relative sizing.

Re: Let's talk about sex

Ballonboy, I could kiss you for confirming what I half wished were true and half feared. I think it is the near brush with death that gives us the extra kick. Freud recorded time and again that proximity to death is a huge libido booster. I think it may be bigger than death, maybe it's just the lim...

Re: Let's talk about sex

Is this thread for real? Assuming it is, I used to have a great session followed by a great session. I'd arrive at my GFs usually with a towel wrapped around me and sandy feet.

Re: Advisable Launch positi

Better red than dead.

Think about it. When hot launched or more powered than you thought, how often are you pulled backwards? Precisely. You get pulled towards the kite. In this case the sea. When in doubt keep it low and away until at waters edge.

Much larger margin of error for red.

Re: Toeside on a surfboard losing power

I don't have a problem riding powered and pointing upwind riding toeside (strapped) given enough power- slightly more than I would require when I switch my feet. But I never really thought much about what I was doing so can't offer much advice. That said there others who have commented have offered ...
