Anyone have any good leads or advice on footstraps?
DaKine seems to be the only brand available, with options of the Primo, Contour, Supremo, Tyrant.
Whats the best performing and best value for money?

I was wondering about the Tyrant, a little wider than the Primo? Sounds good.
joe, thanks for the video link, very interesting. Looks a dakine Primo or Tyrant is the go. The vid eliminates the contour for me. The tip on using a piece of inner tube is interesting, I might trial that

Just fitted some Primos to my Goya waveboard. Very comfortable: feels like a new board again.

Cheers, Jens

I quite like the neilpryde ones ,worth a look very stiff and easy to adjust .
I got mine from Reg,at windsurfing perth .I did have Dakine ,but found them soft once you got them wet .
still nice and soft on the top of your foot ....

Ha...not too bad ..he has others ...but they should out last your board ...

keep your old ones ,put them back on when you re sell

they are just so easy to adjust .especially if you use boots from time to time ,Lets hope he still sells them ..it was 6 months back .

neilpryde sails expensive ....? . Yeah .

i like their harness lines too...bin looking for lime green ones for ages .and got em'.

That's interesting on the strap tuning. Any thoughts on that ? Agree/Disagree ??

I really like external adjustment. Dakine used to do one called Proform I think? Can't find it on the site though.... The Chinook ones are very nice as well. They are coming out with a new externally adjustable wide strap that looks sweet too...

Me thinks that you're stretching the truth a little, just a little.

Ok, I'm fibbing. I'm a long streak of pelican s***.
I'm Stretch on GPSTC, but that that was taken on SeaBreeze, so I added the "Y"

BOA lacing might work(found on shoes), it would be relative easy to adapt to footstraps with the convenience of external quick adjustment.
