THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
Foiling is one of the most fun disciplines of kiteboarding, but learning can be daunting. Those first sessions can be downright scary. Fear not though, because as you get the hang of it, it all becomes so much easier and less intimidating. One of the things that beginners struggle with is whether or not to use footstraps. We've found that the half strap gives new riders the best of both worlds. They allow you to have better control of the board, especially when it comes to board starts. The half strap lets you keep the board on its side and gives you better control when getting up without risking getting a foot stuck when you crash. We've found the half strap is a great tool for beginners as well as more experienced foilers and we use them for our lesson program and highly recommend them.
SLINGSHOT'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Slingshot Half Straps are exactly what the name suggests- they're half of a foot strap designed to provide leverage and a locked-in feel with the confidence of knowing you can kick free of your board when you crash. No more twisted ankles and sketchy crashes from getting stuck to your foil board.
Standard foot straps are a useful tool for foiling, and it can be easy to get your feet stuck and increase the risk of injury, particularly to the ankles. This is especially true during the early stages of foiling progression, when crashing at awkward angles is common. The Half Strap is the happy-medium. They provide leverage to get the board in position and keep it secure and they’re extremely easy to disengage from during a crash.
