Hi Felix, for freestyle beginners just use the front strap widest position, i.e. the outer inserts, not the narrower ones. and then put the straps in the second hole from the back if you like a normal stance. On the back strap, use the second holes from the back on the double straps. Our pro-riders use a variety of positions on the front straps with more angle and narrower, was well as different distances between front and back straps according to their height and personal style?
