Greetings. I did a lot of research and finally dropped the money on the infinity. I have a 138 split from Nobile and I really like it. I was looking to include my foil arsenal into my travel plans. I'm new to foiling but getting good, long rides and really enjoying myself a lot. Out of the box the board heavy but is very nice looking. I was, however, very disappointed with the straps. It's a fixed pattern with very little room for expansion. I have small feet (8.5 US) and the largest version does not leave a lot of room for foiling. On my first outing I was overpowered and really cruising along. The tight straps really distracted me and made me very nervous. I was bailing out earlier than normal for fear of hurting my ankle or foot. A few of the times I had a hard time getting my foot out to abandon ship. It was bad enough the I loosed 1 side (I do like they screw system) while out in the water and had a go at strapless. It worked but that's not how I wanted to first try strapless.
I'm a long time backcountry skier that mounts my own skis. I've used these inserts for years and trust them at high speeds and in high consequence terrain. https://quiverkiller.com. I've mounting several things on my boat (saltwater) and they've held over the years. They are super strong and really useful. I mounted 2 inserts in the center of the board for a foot hook. I also shimmed the hook so it's very loose fitting. I will probably add a 3rd insert for a single, center strap .
I haven't ridden is surf board style yet though I'm sure it performs fine for my needs. I wish I had the opportunity but I don't find myself in real waves - yet. I also had to make an adapter to attach the Stringy foil since the LF adapter plate is not 165 x 90m. I contacted Stringy and he's considering making his latest "quick connector" plates for this mounting dimension since it's the most universal. At home I use the Lift Foil which I'm really liking. In all, it looks great and the board will make travel easier, but I'm disappointed. cheers.
