HWR Footstrap position?Remi?
What would be the best footstrap position for the new HWR Formula Board.
Front and Back?
Thanks In advance.:)

Hi Nonopr,

Again each rider have their best tune, but this is my preference :

All the way in the in the back for the back one but all the way in the front for the front one, this help me to go deep in the down wind.

Hope this help

All the best

I wonder if Starboard is ever going to include a fifth footstrap with their formula boards now that don't include the fin with the board. That is for the chicken strap or at least the anti twist washer and alligator washer.
Aslo thanks for the quick responce.

Hi Remi,
Would you use the same set for the 160?
How big are you? On weak winds I always have the feeling that the front footstrap could be some distance back... I am only 170cm tall and 73kg...

Hi Calosgp5,

I am 90kgs, this position straps is good for the HWR for light winds for me but for you at your weight and on the 160 will be probably completely in the back for the back one and in the middle outside for the front one

Hope this help

All the best

Tks Remi,
Sorry to bother, but if you donīt mind could you give some explanation on that?
Why the middle on the front one?
Last weekend races, I checked every board, all 160 FE and good experienced sailors, and everybody seems to tune it diferrently, and the reasons are a dark cloud for me...

Hi Carlosgp5,

It was my favorite set up to combine the performances up wind and down wind on this boards at in my place at this time almost all the riders was using the same.

Again we have multiple insert footstraps to fit all riders size and body weight. Better you try all of them and found the best position for you.

Have fun

All the best
