I ride the same board as well...excellent for old school!

The straps are excellent, because you can make them pretty wide, which is needed to get out and back in quickly.

But many boards are good, they should not be longer than 135 and not too wide. You want to ride a smaller board with a bigger kite. Wide boards cannot be edged as good when powered with a bigger kite.

Too soft is also not good, then you will lose too much energy for big airs.
