Just curious, I’ve never ridden wit footholds. I like you setup. But do you feet ever get caught in those when you wipeout? I’d be worried about breaking an ankle if my foot got stuck…
Negative, They are not a tight fit on my feet. I wear a self draining kayak shoe. i have plenty of grip and room to move around. I do typically end up left foot forward. In the front toe hold or upper left corner of tray and right foot is typically about 1-2 o'clock position rearward in the channeled foot hold. My toe of the right shoe is planted against the tray side. if i want to launch off a boat wake. I can slow down and put right foot at the very back of the tray. Push down and lean back-Throttle up all at the same time and "Braaappp-Houston we have lift off! "

As far as wipe out goes. The tray is usually super wet and while not slippery, it is very easy to slide out of. I do not keep my feet stabbed in parallel at the rear channels often. That is for slow speed goofing around and getting the nose up then pop it for a sub or similar. still very easy to slip out of and ive pushed the ski away from me many times half a second into a wipeout
