base came out like this
the idea is ti mortise thebase to the keel profile and glue it with epoxy and carbon.
this wil sándwich with the board with a plate in the other side
i will use method described by Zfennel and do a box thru the board to increase rigidity of connection.

I only drilled 4 mounting holes, so I can still use the twintip board without the hydrofoil.

hello hawaiis,
your board looks amazing!
ive been meaning to buy those pads, do they lock good? how about the shifting?
The board i will use is stiff and not very good from 2004 its a liquid forcé lithium 155 that i choped the tips to travel..
No harm done cutting it will work for the foil.

Thanks guys!!!!
Im no wizard, when using routers, jigs to make slots are everything you need in low Budget Jobs.
It didnt came out very true but epoxy resin will do the rest.
I put 4 layers of 6 oz fiberglass and one 5 oz. carbón layer on the base to decrease Wood plate flex and spliting when using bolts.
Im kind of stuck right now because im waiting on resin to arrive by mail.
I will post pics as son i i get every thing on track.
today is windy so no woodworking today!! :D

The rotating pads after some adjustments work very well. Especially if you are using directional board. twintip does not require as much rotations. I had them on my directional hydrofoils, but I took them off now going strapless.
