Sorry to steal the thread. How do you like the board? Which foil did you get with it? Im thinking about the SUP foil.
I got the Naish foil and board package - but the 2017 version, so only had the one foil option (same as liquid force foilfish foils), with both 90cm and 40cm masts.tautologies wrote: ↑Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:33 amSorry to steal the thread.

I would like to experiment with riding more toeside on the foil and a central strap would put my foot in the right position for that, as opposed to having my foot not being quite in the right position, as it feels at present. Right now toeside feels very unbalanced to me. I can't see the issue with adding more holes at the manufacturing stage. I will have to try riding the board strapless (as in your photos on your boards) and see my foot position. I miss the opportunity of trying it with straps first - maybe I won't like it, as you have found, but I would like to have the option - nothing wrong with that IMHO - other manufacturers put in all options for straps and even other boards in the Naish range have it.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:59 amWhy do you want a front strap "surf" position ?
It is not a surfboard but a hydrofoil
Once back when starting 4 years ago, I thought the single frontstrap was good for waves and fun - I don't think so anymore.
If it was a crossover board, of course it could be needed, but it is not.
Maybe if you are super flexible or a contortionist, you would like it, I don't know...
But for blokes like me, nope.
I think it is a wrongly used reminiscent from surfboards, seriously
Of course there is nothing wrong with a single frontstrap when long so you can twist your foot, and simplicity always good - but IMO it is never needed on a hydrofoil
