Does anyone ever tried a wave deflector before and could share the experience? Does it really help keeping the board dry? I have a flatwater dugout (One Edge, 14 x 23) and had a lot of water on my last race, headwind and chop conditions. Cheers

I saw a guy put something like this on the nose of his board. He said it made a huge difference. He managed to find one the was close enough to the right size.

I have also seen people put a foam strip just infront of where the dugout starts. Helps to stop the water going into the dugout area.

VMG Blades do a great EVA foam deflector that we sell heaps of.

You can always put one of these on as well, made for the ocean boards mostly but will work well on the Edge Pro. www.oneoceansportsaustralia.com/shop/one-splash-guard

These look nice! How are they attached to the board?
