Jim Drake Windsurf Footstraps



Jim Drake footstraps designed for comfort and performance. From Wave and Freestyle to High speed and Olympic class iQFoil, the Jim Drake footstraps provides you the best grip while inside with durable materials ECO friendly and super light.


The Jim Drake Deluxe footstraps are made from Yulex foam with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel. Under your feet the 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern will provide the necessary grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.


The premium Jim Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during manufacturing is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance, carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.

Ultralight MK4

The Jim Drake Ultralight MK4 footstraps are ideal for foiling when foot pressure is lighter than regular windsurfing. The Ultralight’s elongated screw slots allow racers to set their back strap extra-wide using hole spacings further apart. This allows the rider’s foot to shift forward for downwind and backwards for upwind. Perfect trim adjustment on the fly.

For every board sold, Starboard plants 3 mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation. Each Mighty Mangrove sinks down 673kg of VCS certified CO2 during its first 25 years.

Together, our 3 mangroves offset the boards Carbon Emissions 10 X over and fund local livelihoods projects in Myanmar.
