My question is... this hole in the middle (red circled) does not seem to be fully drilled, I can barely appreciate half a centimeter deep and all black compared to the other standard holes (who seem to go far depper). Do you know if it is usable directly, screwing it directly or not? The hole is also outside from the pad.... any trouble with that?
Hi all, sorry for the confusion. Actually is a little bit of shame to myself
The hole is perfectly drilled. There was some kind of dirt from the drilling, and covered the hole show from direct view seemed to be not fully drilled. Anyway, the screw enters perfectly. In the other hole you can use the same screw that comes standard with the plug, although is a bit short, but works.
By the way, now I have tested the board both ways: 2 rear straps and 1 single rear strap. It feels very different:
- 2 straps: more racy. you ride the board much flatter so you can go better upwind and faster. However is less manouvrable.
- 1 strap: is more similar to 2011s, more manouvrable, and I guess bit less of top speed and upwind performance. The board desing is already a bit racier than 2011, so I like more this configuration.
It depends of what you are looking for. If like a race board, go with 2 straps. If you like carving, more stability and fun go for 1 strap. I chose 1 single strap. Good for the designer to give us the option.
