Yeah well, as to the standard footstraps, there are rubbish. They do retract once wet, I replaced them with dakine primo's to good effect.
The outward back footstrap position on the 2008 model is also very awkward to get into. Really a pain in the ***, especially when you're getting tired at the end of your session
I think this issue has been addressed on this year's version, too bad for customers like me who bought the first Futura
