Footstraps inserts for surfboard?

Postby gatecrasher » Tue Feb 09, 2010 11:27 am

I've got a very nice Resin8 6.1 swallow tail and also a 5.8 F-ONE with straps also detachable as the board as a very nice deck. But I would like to travel light when going on holiday and I was wondering if its such a good idea to get the local shaper to fix some straps inserts just in case it gets a bit too heavy duty for me.

Thanks all for the input

You dont need a shaper to put them in u can do it yourself it is not that hard u just have to know how to do it u need a three quarter inch spade bit one quarter inch T nuts and a little epoxy drill a hole set the T nuts in and fill with epoxy dont forget to fill the T nuts with a screw or take it to a shaper
