I have had my monk for a few months and I really like it, except one thing....
if I am riding barefoot after a while the straps/footbed bother the outside part of my feet.
I think the memory foam compresses and the part of the footbed where your small toe and that side of my foot becomes very uncomfortable.
This starts to happen after about 1/2 hour.
Does anyone else have this problem with their Monk or other Shinn board with the same straps and pads? Any solutions besides wearing something on feet?
I had exactly the same problem.
I sent following to the boss:
"...Firstly - riding left foot forward, jumping and landing, my left foot's little toe hurts very much when hitting the water because the plastic bit of the strap is not padded appropriately. Is there any way I can change that or the set-up?"
This was his answer:
"I find this very strange, do you have the larger Sneaker or the RS set? The straps adjust from both ends when you make them larger, maybe open them completely and check that when you made it larger it did not simply extend on one side exposing the plastic fixer."
Try it and let us know if it helps.
