i discovered a small trick which may work .. when i try to get into the footstraps of my GO139, which are fully exentrated i get into the front one first as soon as i start planning (thats the easy part), then i start moving my backfoot back relatively fast and i place it behind the rear strap so that its fully on the tail. when i gain more speed i go more upwind and then to go a bit more downwind again i place my backfoot quickly enough in the backstrap and i start gliding across the water with the biggest of ease.
