I have no straps on my board
I can ride toeside, and it does not work if my weight is too far forward (the board will come down on the water, a no go).
It seems to ride fine with the same stance as not toeside (at least on my foils), maybe because you lean forward a bit bending front leg, before attempting the switch
But could be an idea to move the rear foot sligthly further forward and put pressure on the rear foot to keep foiling and better to go down than up true - dont know if better ?
Will find out...
But having the rear foot further foward, makes the turn much worse (difficult) IMO, a larger radius which is NOT the purpose (and you might have to downloop the kite to keep it running).
Way easier for me, to ride a tight radius when not too far forward but the exact same stance as when going straight.
Most important thing though, is to NOT go too deep before turning !
Better that you go slightly upwind instead, and with good speed - then you can make a tight turn and keep the kite alive
The challenge is, I need to be better at controlling everything, and doing the foot switch weightlessly !
I know, it will come, just have to wait and during time I am sure it will work (hoping)
Just wanted to share a step on my "learning" path
