rightguard wrote:Ok I've been wondering about Mutant boards but maybe I should just get help with my directional. I have a Naish Gun, couple years old but brand new. I can't get use to the straps and they kill my feet. Any advice on how to set the straps up? Are there better straps out there that you would suggest?
Straps are like shoes, you need to try different models to find the right fit. In any case they should be much looser than on a TT to allow for more movement of the foot.
The foot pad has a bump down the center, right under the strap. Is that bump suppose to go under your arch or under your toe? How do you keep your back foot heal from dragging in the water?
Your feet should be over the center line of the board. Bumps in the pads are ment for you to feel the location of your feet on the board when riding straspless.
What do you think of the Naish Gun as a first directional?
Probably not the most versatile board but good enough to start. Most of all surfing is something very personnal so take advice but also do/ride what feels right for you whether with or without straps.
Exactly - so so true !windmaker wrote:To prove your point, those DK straps were the worst I ever had
Could'nt ride without getting sore feet... sold them within a week and the guy who bought them loves them.
So what straps I use now does not matter because although they are perfect for me they could be someone elses nightmare !
