RE: Harness and Footstraps
how high is your boom? Im o expert but a higher boom alows more weight to be hung from the sail I find so you don't have to put so much pressure on the back foot. Maybe get into your harness when you are further up on your board and more back a bit so when you do hook in you wont push down on the tail. I will wait for rogers reply as I am interested in what he thinks too.
hope this helps,
