1 Centerline or 2 Angle Footstraps in the front?

Building a raceboard but have not decided on the footstrap insert placement yet. I like centerline for downwind and toeside, but dual straps with angle in the front is good for upwind and jibing. Any compromise?

I would think it's more a question of board width. If it's wide enough you can put a three strap set up on. Or try both. Just add an extra point in the center. My north race LTD just doesn't feel wide enough for two front straps. Doesn't really need them either.
