You need to get about half your foot under the footstrap, but you don't want to get your foot in so far that it traps your arch.
So, just set your straps wide enough and open enough so your toes extend beyond the footstrap.
I always set my straps a bit wider than the width of my foot, but I set the length of the strap so only my toes extend beyond the inside of the strap.
This makes getting into and out of the straps easier, and allows me to "turn my foot" to put the pressure from my heels in different positons (foot still in the strap) along the rail of the board.
Hope this helps,
Sandy,

Agree with Roger. Have a look at pictures on page 76 of this paper below about footstrap's size, width and spread. Take the freeride setup example : http://issuu.com/arcwindltdpublishin...923588/5505633

Also, check out the video "Getting in to the footstraps" : http://www.star-board-windsurfing.co...ssembly_video/

Cheers !
