I understand where coleman is coming from. Front foot doesn't move much, back does. So no back strap is a bonus, but front pad is there 'if' you want a bit of control going out over nasty chop at speed. It doesn't get in the way like the back strap. A nugget seems made to ride strapless, but one on front seems sound. 2 for jumping. EZ you have too much kit, so why no strapless ?
You may think you know where is coming from
Do you also know where he is going ?
The back strap is not in the way at all......it is actually in the perfect spot
Make sure it is set 7" apart and loose enough so that foot goes in exactly centered over the board
You just put your back foot in it to do the stuff that cannot be done with just one front strap
There is plenty of room ...."about 18 inches " between both footstraps to trim board
The Nugget is meant to be driven and jumped hard and high in all types of winds..no wimpy turns
People with no straps or one strap just get blown by by those with 2 properly fitted straps
You hit the waves harder and trow all the possible directional transitions and kiteloops in the book
With one strap you limit yourself sooooooooooooooooooooo much
List all the moves you can do with one strap....or no straps
I will then list all i those i do with 2 of them
This goes for you too Coleman
