It is not the right question: toes up once you are in the foot straps. When You are well powered up and You have problems with the fronfoot going out, the balance is totaly out of order, The board and sail must be trimmed optimally to give the same power to the front and rearfoot.

try lifting your toes up once you are in the foot straps and what board do you ride.

Your problem is the price we have to pay for the wide/short modern boards. Its a well known problem since the hypersonic.
1 Lower the boom
2 The mastfoot a bit forward
3 minimize the distance between the front and rearstrap (frontstrap backwards)
4 Smaller fin
5 A real stable sail when well powered up
6 Maximal downhaul

Unregistered I have had this problem on most of my boards and in the end I,ve had to install extra plugs into the boards or make my own boards.Most boards don,t come with enough choices.Have a look at a non drill solution for foot straps at www.mtbest.net.au Hope this helps as you carn,t go fast if your not comfortable.

There could be numeroeus reason for the front foot coming out.

However, if you was to move your mast forward that would instantly solve the problem.

LK Try to move harness lines further back on the boom

Unregistered Thanks guys, but I have tried all these things and my foot still works its way back out, very scary when going fast.

steveC You might want to consider the fin size and stiffness. Too much fin can make it tough to maintain your stance in the front straps. Is the lift you are experiencing tough to control or balance?

Uncle Mike if you've already tried your boom height (and dropping it a little would be worth a try) try your mast base further forward - try in small increments
