Use a piece of gardenhose. Slightly longer than the distance between the inserts.

Sounds like a fin issue. The Gonzalez has some pretty big fins since it's aimed towards newer riders where all the little upwind attributes of a board are needed.

Having bolts come loose is not a torque issue. Use some sort of thread sealer and it will help.

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!
