The age old debate about Boots vs Straps has been going on for quite a while now. Now I hardly think it is a "debate" but more of a decision that the individual kiter needs to make. If you are anything like me I was instantly drawn to boots. I spent maybe a hand full of months in straps before I jump straight into a pair of boots. After about three and a half years later I haven't looked back.
In this episode I try and shed some light on the pros and cons of boots and straps. There was a lot of conflicting ideas about the notion when I was researching about it however after a couple years and several pairs of straps, boots and board combinations I have decided to share my experiences through this episode.
Welcome and thanks for listening to The Adrenalin Rush Podcast.
You're probably wondering why you're seeing episode 16 on a Monday, well I have something exciting to tell you!
Recently I have decided to set myself the ambitious task to compete in a 45km Stand Up Paddle Board Race. Now I will be the first person to admit that I am by no means a paddler or SUP racer. My time on the water paddling has been VERY limited and leisurely which I'm sure a lot of the general public can relate, so needless to say I am feeling very nervous about the whole situation.
The reason why I have decided to set this goal and be pretty open and public about it relates to a few underlining motivations.
