Introduced in 2016, NSI Foot Hooker™ straps were designed and heavily tested in collaboration with seasoned foiler/designer Jim Stringfellow and foiler/board builder John Doyle.
Spring boarding off NSIís original foam Foot Hook™ strap, we strived to engineer a ridged Hook, combine with soft comfort, that is durable enough for the rigors of Kite Hydrofoiling.Equipped with feedback from riders in varying conditions around the world, we designed the original and best Foot Hook™ strap on the market.
After significant testing, NSI dialed in the perfect angle for the Hooks. The ideal angle of Foot Hooker™ straps accommodate easy entry, a secure and comfortable hold, while still maintaining quick exit for reduced risk of common ankle injury which can occur with standard footstraps.
Hookers are a combination of thermo formed Polycarbonate plastic, non-absorbent, cushy foam padding and a custom soft neoprene cover for a clean, aesthetic finish. Covers are available in many must see colors!
Foot Hooker™ straps have proven to be the most ideal strap set up for foiling or strapless surfboard riding. They offer an unstrapped board feel with optimum leverage for waterstarts, a secure fit while riding or hucking it and ease of disengagement when crashing. Hookers provide control of riding with straps, while retaining the freedom of riding strapless.
NSIís Infinite Anchor Mounting System** allows the Foot Hooker™ to be mounted on any board, in any direction. Parallel, perpendicular, and anything in between. No Twist washers are included. Mount the washer on top of the hook, under the neoprene cover. Sold in sets of two or three. Covers are available in Black, Red, Pink, Orange, Teal, Green Camo, Blue Camo or Black & White Zebra.
