Agree, strapless is always preferred - but there are days when the chop makes it more fun to ride hard with straps....and sometimes it's fun to boost big in the waves with a small surf/directional too. Just different tools for different situations - nice to have the option some days.Johnny Rotten wrote: If you insist on riding with straps,it gets the job done WAY better. But ask yourself why am I riding with straps?
Full rotation with no lock. That is a very good option....henningsurf wrote:Sorry Fred, I do not agree on the described risk.
If you keep the stopper features as delivered, then it stops after 55 degrees turning and in addition your foot will also twist within the strap approx. 20-30 degrees.
So falling forward you can point your toes towards the tail of your board and then you already have had much more time to get out.
I have use this setup for over 2 years and pushed the crashing in so many different ways. When ever there was a problem, then it appeared on my fixed backstrap as loosing the front strap gave me no time to react.
As decribed in the instruction: you can choose to remove the stopper and your board can actually make full turns. I have of course tested this too - for many sessions.
If you want this level of safety you just have to fix the bungee in place once in a while.
This product has now been on the marked for over 2 years and lots of experience has been collected in many customer mails. I feel pretty confident that it does not create new problems compared to fixed straps and I would like to change your postulate to "Kitesurfing can be dangerous..."
Hope all this sound reasonable and for those who seek the ultimate safety and freedom it can only be riding strapless. "Everybody should choose its tools for fun."
