Footstraps can be very helpful on your hydrofoil or kitesurf board.
Having footstraps on your board helps train your muscle memory safely for tricks and airs by keeping your board on your feet. Slingshot Surf footstraps can easily be placed on your board and just as easily removed, exactly like training wheels.
Watch this quick how-to video for installing surf footstraps onto your hydrofoil or kitesurf board. Be sure to follow the steps carefully.
It is super important to run your mounting screws through the anti-twist plates AND the beefy strap webbing – not just the leather tab. The hole in the webbing can be found under the neoprene cover at the end of each surf strap. The screw must run through the anti-twist plate, the webbing, and finally through the little leather tab on the underside of the surf strap. Make sure you don’t skip the webbing! If you only run it through the bottom leather flap, your surf straps will fail. Make sure to check your screws frequently.
