I’m guessing that the straps they provided are lighter so that you don’t trip up on them when you want to switch stance
in mutant mode, its a very good design like this…nothing else out there like it.
Makes more sense than Slingshots track system that puts a 1” tall pan head bolt head above the deck on each side of the strap!
IMO its still a lite’r wind weapon in twin tip mode with your stance evened out over the hull.
I ran it 70% of the time in a twin tip stance with a surf fin in one end that favored my goofy preference
in both lite and heavy winds, it changes how you size your kite, like I would size the kite for the gusts and not the lulls.
If you really want to put to some foot beds on it the only thing I think you would need is some longer screws.
(and the foot bed/staps of course)
Right now its set up in twin tip mode with one of those big surf fins on each side.
I’ve never tried that one before.
All I need now is some wind man! Yeeeee Haw!
