best foostrap for no footers and new generation of tricks

Postby Guest » Sun Mar 30, 2003 11:18 am

Dear all

At the moment I'm using slingshot footstraps which I like very much but unfortunatelly they are asymetrical and theirefore not so ideal for tricks where I go out of the footstrap because it matters from which side I come back into the foostrap.

Are there any symetrical foostraps on the market which you could recomend. Personaly I don't like it when the straps are to soft!

Mucho gracias for your help....

everybody i know use some kind of asymmetric strap, they give more support and more comfort.

sure you can't ride the board 180 switch after a board off, but does it really matter.

and in most cases nearly everyone has their straps 'ducked' to give better foot position, if you ride with straight straps there is a tendency for the back foot to slip out.

Havent you guys heard!
Foot out tricks are officially gay.
this was announced last week at a meeting of marmite miners at kite beach maui.
I still cant do them but I now I am glad I never learnt. Lou went to the trouble of stopping NSI from putting a grab handle on the buzz just so no one could do those gay boy tricks.
Wakestyle is the future so start saving for knee and shoulder surgery and throw away that safety leash. Dangler suck.
Wa(n)ke forever!

This has been an announcement for the D.A.N.G.L.E.S (Dickheads Against Naughty Girls Learning Extreme Sports)

PS This is a joke. I am a dangler I love to dangle and women tell me I dangle with the best. My fave move is a dangling cann cann one foot transition to toeside.

wa(n)ke riders need a grab handle in the back of their heads for their mates to grab onto when giving them a good rogering in the bum!
