I did from day one, and never tried with straps ever.
Wow, I'm top 10 percentile natural athlete !!! Not. But I get your point...gbrungra wrote: ↑Mon Aug 07, 2017 8:08 pmDefinitely foothooks!
SOMETHING to help you ride on the surface (weight so far forward the board dowesn't foil right away). So a. a board with tracks, b. foothooks mounted all the way forward, or c. a shimmed rear stabilizer. Or some combination of those three things, until you get a feel for front foot pressure control.
Ideally, a short mast for learning. Lots of people learn without one. But it's faster and safer to learn with one. Be honest with yourself. Are you the kind of person who can hop on a new board and just ride, or do you need practice? If you aren't a top 10 percentile natural athlete then get a short mast to learn on.
