View Full Version : Footstrap anti-twist plug

13th June 2009, 02:21 AM

Just bought a Flare 99 from 2007. I mounted the footstraps, I had 2 pieces without the K9 anti twist plugs and one with 4 pieces of screws and wiht 4 pieces of K9 plugs. I think the footstrap with the 4 screws gets to the back position, the other ones with single screws to the front. But I was a bit confused , because the anti twist plugs didn't match next to each other (they were a bit wide). Then I guess that the double-screwed back footstraps are unlikely to twist, thus I get the 4 anti twist plugs out and positioned them under the front straps.
Is it suitable or did I make a mistake?

Another question to you: what is the real volume of the Flare 99 from 2007? There was no measurement in the surf-magazin in Germany about this board.

The back straps don't really need the anti twist.

The front straps do need. as they will be the ones that will probably be moving as you are sailing after couple of days.

I think the flare 99 is a bit less volume then what is says maybe about 95 liters or so.

OK, the estimated 95 liters can cause some problem, I'am 83-84 kg and 190 cm tall. What do you think about using a 6.4 Gaastra Echo with this board for freestyle? Fortunately I have a 109 liter Joker for lighter winds.
But read that Chris Pressler also used the 99 and 88 liter Flares for freestyle before...he is not a little one I think.

After all, I bought this board for my wife for freeride and for me for medium/strong wind freestyle. After reviews it is a comfortable board for freeride simultaneously...

Thanks for your help, also the advices about the grubby

Yes, you can use the 6.4 on the Flare 99.

should be no problem.
