Does anyone know what model Dakine heel strap this is and where it might be ordered? Or can anyone post some links to other simple heel straps that can be integrated into your existing heel and strap system? I've read where a few different companies make them (i.e. Mystic) but I have been searching and not having much luck. Thanks in advance.

Eurus, I don't use 'em, but my friends say the best and most economical solution is to cut an old bicycle tire inner-tube and attach using your footstrap screws. The stretch of the tube adds to comfort and possibly safety, and they work like a charm (so I'm told).

Thanks ONB. Found a pair and placed an order. I also found a forum of kiters who posted reviews and all loved them. Thanks again.

I know Calikites has some. I always feel bad for Brian that he has been stuck with them.

A cheap so ist yourself alternative is using bike tire tubes.

Just cut them as screw them under your straps. Works perfectly too.

i have these heel straps on all four of my boards.......i dont do board offs .....lol

silent sports in toronto carries them....im sure they will ship you some


i came from wakeboarding and didnt want to use boots on the kiteboard but found that booties worn with raptor straps gave me the feeling and safety i was looking for.......the board will only come off in the worst of crashes.
