Favorite Surf Straps

Postby Uride2 » Sat Nov 14, 2009 6:49 am

Got a new Firewire board heading my way, it comes with inserts, but have to provide my own straps.
Which straps do you love?

So far I have liked Jimmy Lewis straps (over naish and slingshot).

I have Cabrinha straps and they work fine and are comfortable enough.

I demoed a board with North straps and they were more comfortable.

I wear booties when using my strapped surfboard. The booties give far better grip and stop the straps crunching my toes.

Thanks guys. Yes I have tried and still use the "sexwax" straps, they are mega fun, but I do like to change it up every once and a while and use real straps. Funny, never thought about trying out the windsurf straps, god knows I have a bunch of "obsolete" inventory around here that I can rob a couple straps from...
