Hi, I just want say that I have tried out many footstraps on the market incl. Light weight footstraps. Finally I ended up using the fanatic premium footstraps even on my Formula board, where I always used light weight footstraps. The reason is the footstraps are very comfortable and you can get out of them very easily.also my wife, who is VDWS Instructor uses them on all of her boards, even on her 86l free Wave board. very good product. Thanks a lot.
