Should you put straps on your kitesurf board or not? In short, there are strengths and weaknesses to both options. Liquid Force’s Luke McGillewie makes the case for transitioning from a twin tip directly to a strapless surfboard… but ultimately, you can’t make the wrong decision and you should ride whatever you find to be the most enjoyable. We encourage you to step outside your comfort zone every once in a while and see why other people enjoy their setup so much. So for strapped riders, give strapless a shot. Strapless riders, give some powered strapped riding a try!
