Default That pesky rear footstrap

Hi Roger,

I was sailing my F-type 158 in 6.3 condtions this weekend with a 50cm weed fin. And I was having a lot of trouble getting into the rear footstrap.

Generally I'd start moving, hook in, start to accelerate, put my front foot in, drive the board through my front foot and it would just take off. I found it impossible to get my rear foot in as I bounced over the chop.

I could get into the rear footstrap by putting my front foot in front of the front footstrap and then putting my rear in and riding the board in that ridiculous position till it really started to move.

What technique am I missing here?

I should add I had the f-type out in those conditions becuase a) I'm working on my waterstarts and wanted to be able to uphaul and b) I love the board. My footstraps were in the inner most positions (but not the chcken strap in the rear).
