Default ST137 wood '06 why outer strap positions?

inner position == gybing okay, speed ~
outer position == footstraps touch water during carve gybes, speed okay

i had the same with my Go in the beginning. I find that once you get planning and then get into the footstraps there is no problem at all. As for the carve jibing, it's a problem you can't really deal with i'm affraid.
In the end it depends what you want to do really: speed or freeride ....
