And finally, add a six inch round Kevlar patch under your front heel to spread the impact.
Best idea Yet !
One step further would be to take 6mm wide router, and take-out a line below your heal, on
the upper deck. Do the last few mm by hand but go all the way to the bottom skin "Without"
damaging the bottom skin. Now shape a section of foam , ( or balsa wood) on end-grain,
as an insert into the groove you just made ; make it fit Loose.
Just wrap the insert with a bit of glass & risen before you insert it ; then add
that Kevlar patch last. Ya Won't be crushing the Core material in That spot, ever again !!
Carbon on a + - 45deg will work Better, but glass is fine ; just use More of it. The
main thing you did is make the core crush-proof ; an added bonus is now the
upper & lower skins are tied together making it WAY stronger than it was before.
