forum for kitesurfers
just wondering if anyone had a solution to worn out footstrap holes that doesnt involve routing out the old footstrap plug and glassing in a new one. for instance... does filling the hole with epoxy resin and then re-drilling it work? or does it just get pulled out again
any help would be appreciated!

MAtt. As long as it is just the thread thats worn out stick a bigger screw in it. If the plug itself is cracked or loose then send it to a repair guy. Often if you are using a coarse thread then a machine screw of the same size will work. If that doesn't try locktite and as a last resort resin. It might never come out again though.
