Re: [ksurf] Bic Copello, adn bindings, and the mysterious reel-power bar
Has anyoneI have used the sandle type bindings when I 1st started using a wakeboard (I still use them when self launching). It's a great stepping stone to bindings if you choose to go that route.
tried out the "sandal" type bindings that have like an open heel (or
at least they have just a strap behind the heel without an entire
rubber upper.)? Is that just counterproductive for kitesurfing or a
nice "in between" windsurf strap and full wakeboard binding?
Advantages, cost (even more so when on sale:)) and can easily get out of them if need be.
They still provide quite a good grip on the foot. Basically a level up from the bungy heel on windsurfing footstraps and a step below full blown bindings.
Sandle type or open heel bindings are a great way to introduce yourself to kiting with a wakeboard, I would recommend using a wake leash with these as you may separate from your board on your bigger, less meaningful splashes.
Hope this helps.
