Foot beds. Which ones do you like?

Postby bdawg » Mon Mar 21, 2005 8:37 pm

Hey everyone I got a question for you. What footbeds do you like and why?
I have recently acquired an '04 Litewave with straps and pads and after a full session on the board i concluded a few things.

I really like the board. What a difference a board can make! :P
The initial feel of the stick on foot beds was really cool with the "brushed" surface it allowed for a little traction for the feet.

What i didn't like about them is that they didn't seem thick enough for my wussy feet. The "brushed" surface actually felt like it was digging into my heels.

I guess another question is, what foot beds would you recommend for someone with wussy feet?


Thanks for your time,

Blair

I don't like the footbeds that are contoured to the arch that inhibit my ability to swivel my feet around in the straps. I like the feeling that I'm riding on a skateboard, so I use the basic flat NSA footpads.

Walk around in the hot sand bare foot for a season. That'll fix your feet, then you could keep your foot pads
