Anyone tried this new / old foot strap idea?
Video is from 5 years ago
From just the video, this looks fantastic
Thoughts?

From a surfboard rider's perspective... Not a foiler's perspective...
That seems backwards to me. I want my straps firm and loose; Not soft and tight.

That being said I have seen people experimenting with similar ideas...

Perhaps there is a reason the concept never really hit mainstream Idea

I think the half strap or foot hooks--which I believe were Jim Stringfellow's idea?--pretty much killed the strap shown in the video.

I like the concept. I made my own foot hooks when I took up hydrofoiling, standard foot straps are much too danderous. If you have have some old foot straps, this looks like a simple mod, which may prevent a bone snap or soft tissue injury.
