Hi,

I'm in the early stages of learning (just start to get up riding for small distances) and have bought a 2nd hand board.

I took everything off to give it a good clean and I'm now putting the foot straps back on but I'm not sure which way the upper neoprene bit of the foot strap goes. One end of the upper neoprene bit is noticeably wider than the other end. Does the wider end go on the inside of the foot like in the 1st pic or on the outside like in the 2nd pic?

Thanks, Mark

It looks like the widest part of a twinny strap goes towards the handle. I learnt on a 139 Chopstick, good board to learn on, but there are more comfortable pads available

Hi Mark,

On your first picture the pads are assembled correctly.

Here is another example:

Thanks to both of of you for helping out. I'll go and get them put back on now. Ta, Mark
