How To Get Into The Footstraps



How To Get Into The Footstraps for Windsurfing: This weeks windsurfing quick tips from Starboard’s windsurf coach Sam Ross is about footstraps. Over the years boards have become shorter, hence the way we get into our footstraps has also changed. Often when people start trying to use the footstraps they move back too quickly and the board turns into the wind or the back of the board starts sinking. To avoid this problem check out Sam’s Video below and adapt how you move your feet on the board, depending on the model of your board.
