Why not placing a small piece of harder foam ?

BTW this are awesome t-nuts, where can we buy them? I'm using North track nuts but man they expensive.
They look like the nuts I got with my sling shot

Well here is one place but it's a way from where you are

They are used for windsurf mast fixing. For more local results Just google something like " Brass T nut mast"

Thanks, they are like a hens teeth in here. But good point, the WS ones I think do not fit? They would be too big for M6 if remember well.
Tomorrow hopefully I'll get the LF mast plate and will check the size and report back.

I've mounted a foil plate to multiple different boards. T nuts work great for wooden boards like wake skates.

For lots of boards you can just drill right through and use big washers and then bolt The plate right on. Works great and is super easy

I would love to have a set of these nuts with set-screw design to keep them in a specific location
example of set-screw use below
