Got my new Airush sector 60 in...I am wondering how do you find the best position for the 3 footstraps?
Thx
Frank

3 straps (1 back 2 front) or 3 straps at rear and 2 front

If your are looking for confort , ride it strapless and you will find it easily
if you are looking for performance , it is a little bot more complicated

2 front 1 back
is free race board, to my opinion needs straps to keep it flat.

One strap at the back does not help to keep the board flat , to keep the board flat it is easier if your back foot is on the rail

Hi....it is a free race board and not as wide in the back as the regular race boards...

I think I will start to put them all as far towards the end of the board as possible...then I will test...
thx

As I first mentionned, remove the back strap first ride with the board and check where your foot is located , , this is your optimal and confortable position
