Can anyone tell me which screws I should be buying to affix footstraps to this?
And before some wag suggests to take the board to a screw shop it is logistically inconvenient.
Just make sure they are not too long for your board.
10 gauge 1inch long stainless self tapers.
The old Chinook blocks used a 10G screw as the guys said.
The ones on most boards now (ie: made at Cobra factory) have a larger hole and use a 6mm OD Plastite screw (which you will not get anywhere bar a WS / KS shop). Though nay kiteboards are still using the old school syste
Best to measure them.
Just use a drill bit to size it.
If the hole is about 3.5mm is what they guys said above.
4mm or smidge bigger (I think 4.2mm in reality) its a M6 Plastite.
Crazyfly.. built to last, what size is it?? You wanna sell it??
Don't fark up your board from wrong info. Your inserts will be a certain diameter and depth, also imp or metric , pretty easy to go to your local hardware and select correct fitting, ensure its marine grade stainless , personally I'd go Alan key or star key head, don't forget your strap as that'll affect length of fixing
Thanks for the advice guys.
I will let you know if I want to sell it after I've figured out whether it is beyond may capability to learn to use it!
It is beyond your capability mate, you are too old learn anything new. Stick to your twin tip and speedo's.
No it's not. I am mentally and physically prepared for this transition.
Okay Gramps, just remember the pointy end goes forwards.
Check this out, all done. I took your advice and got the half straps. I bought a handle as well but thought I may not need it as proved to be the case when I did an 80 k down winder today.
Steering with one hand on the bar!
(Not really. That last bit was a lie.)
