one good reason to take the straps off is that its easier to learn without them.
if you are out at Klittmöller or similar spot with really big short period waves, then i can imagine having the straps on is a big advantage.

I like you want to ride with straps :thumb: instead of "following the hords" and mania :duh:

I've seen so many "newbees" in waves who think it is the "only" right thing to do - where real life is just opposite mostly, only a few fanatics does it around here, and only in some conditions - the rest, also the best and most experienced, ride strapped :wink:

Of course talking about our spots here - it might be VERY different at other spots I know.

Still - I like you dont just follow 8)
Respect to you for that :hut:

:D Peter

Totally agree with above!
