I'm interested in some way of holding my feet down to the hull so that I can hike out (and work the old abs!) while sitting on the wing seats... Any hiking strap or other ideas or mods with pics would be appreciated.
Thanks much! :)

I chap in my group runs a simple strap between both ends of the wing attached to the tube on this H18 SX Mag. Works a treat but i can't find any photos that shows it sorry.

Thanks... That's a good idea. :) The straps definitely need to be tight, secure, and not slippery. (It would not be good to back dive of the windward wing, especially while singlehanding.)
