      re lukas letter
      i understand the idea of upwards pull    soposed to make it easy
      i do a bit of skiing on water and play with a jet ski  but i am unable to do a deep start on what we call a pig board   {very short board    5ft  }  its half way between a surfboard and a wakeboard   i am not strong enuff in the legs {too skinny} 
      i have a spare surfboard in the garage for anyone interested   you have to pay freight   i read the price of the f one board with horror a few days ago 
      in regards to toms question the answer is yes  its easy with some tools     you can buy mounting blocks ,sometimes called plugs ,  i used a router to cut slots in the board then resin to glue the blocks in place with a final layer of matting over the top   the other fun bit is trying to mark where your feet go whilst using the board so you get the right spot   it worked good for me but i dont know what would happen on a real big jump make sure that you get stainless scews and washers  once i worked out the position i just drilled and screwed the straps onto the board
      the other way is to use a piece of aluminium as a base plate{ fairly large}  cover it with closed cell foam and screw your straps to the aluminium with countersunk scews and screw the plate to the board this way would give you more freedom to change your foot position 
      i would be interested if anyone has a better idea
