For Toby or anyone else who has these, what are the handholds on the edges of your board made out of? How are they attached?

Here it is from the website. I haven't received it in the mail yet. I was thinking to make my own but I'm having trouble finding materials to use for it.

I notice the flysurfer toeside grip does not fit the profile of the flyradical S.

As you mention 'I use super glue'. Is it actually super glue or a contact adhesive?

it works on the 2013 Radicals, since they are flat.
The former ones have an edge.

So I super glued it and put weight on it so it sticks even in the middle part.
But do scratch the surface to give the glue more hold than on the smooth surface.
