Re: [ksurf] Re: Binding Sizes on the Lightwave 169
- Only go as wide as you need though! I use these bindings with size 12
and fairly narrow feet and they work fine for me. Maybe try one side
first but not both. The narrowness holds my feel securely from the sides
although it does make it a bit tougher to get in.
No way I can get booties in, even thin neoprene socks was a pain so I
used nsi anti bindings with wide kochstraps for winter sailing..but
that's over now here.
