Can anyone shed any light on best foot strap positioning?
I have moved my back strap as far forward as possible and the front strap is sitting mid way amongst the pre-drilled holes.
I am looking forward to hearing about one of the guys new to the French section of the forum who is riding the board strapless to give himself more freedom.

on the skyski one, you have to use foot positioning to adjust lift of the foil. If your center of gravity is too far back, then the foil wants to come out of the water too much, making it near impossible to ride.

Even though it's a different experience, I used a boat to pull me until I found the perfect position for my feet, where the foil wasn't dead (would still fly), but didn't have too much positive lift.

After I set it, I haven't really needed to move it around.

I know it sound like a p1ss take But where the board is comfortable really is the answer. Start forward and move back until the board riding is effort less I find a wide stance helps

Funny, because I find it better to ride it with a reduced stance. My feet very close make that any pressure mistake have less influence on the up or down effect. Particularly going down the wind. My back foot is before the rear footstrap that is already the most forward possible.
Going upwind my stance is wider and back feet in the strap too.
