How to make soft bar ends for Core sensor bar? Hard ones kill boards!

Postby omg » Sun Aug 18, 2019 7:36 pm

So, I have now two serious damages to my surfboard from the stupid sharp and hard bar end of Core Pro Sensor bars.
Hence, I really need somehow to make soft bar ends to stop hitting the board, but don't know how to make them. What would be your solutions, other than switching to another brand. I am sure others would appreciate this help too!

Thanks!

Idea 1: Buy some eva sheets and cut bits to fit, glue on with contact glue
Idea 2: Buy some thicker bicycle handle bar tape, wrap it around the ends and tape ends with electrical tape.

Just an example:
