Getting into footstraps
I'm trying to improve my skills of getting into the footstraps. On bigger, wider boards (i.e., 75cms up), I can do it the conventional way -- front foot first, then ease the back foot it.
On narrower boards (i.e., <70cm), I find it much easier to put my back foot in first (very lightly), accelerate, and then it's easy to put my front foot in.
I'm just curious if others find this and how many suffer from this backwards disease?Any suggestions for curing it?
PS. I'm 180 lbs and sail in the Northeast. So, typical sail is 9.0.
