Any one who has ridden this? I know it is just about the same as the mikes lab (cobra factory in Thailand )??
I would love input if it rides better in the front inserts, middle or rear inserts. Or perhaps centered on the pattern with the width of your choice??
I can't ride for several weeks and am just staring at it dreaming...
The placement depends very much on your weight, your skill level and water conditions.
Here are some pointers:
Back Straps: The Farther back, the more leverage you will have on the fin, eg less pressure. This works if the wind is strong and the water is flat. The lighter the wind you want to move the strap father up to be able to push the board harder on the upwind
Front Straps: The farther forward you go, the more stable (less jumpy)the boards gets, but also slower.
Rule of thumb. Start in the middle, and see how the board rides. Then adjust accordingly.
