The Flysurfer/Nobile system uses a milled groove in the front face of one side and a tongue in the other. Maybe the better solution for series boards but for me not easy to realize at home builts. The profile segments are not loose, I´m gluing them to one side of the board. Still searching for a solution for the locking-bolt which is loose at the moment what I don´t like as well.
rubber attachment line could be a solution. I would like to keep it short because otherwise it could catch a toe for example. Could be very painfull especially on a skimboard. Sand in the split-system is always very bad and will kill the parts. I always clean the board before mounting. Afterwards it´s not a big deal, except the bolts. If they catch sand you will need some force to twist them. However the big skim has about 25 days at the beach, the twintip is quite new. So no long run experience up to now.

Only complaint about the splits, you need to keep cleaning them and lubing the pins. The Nobile is a little better in the regard, sometimes I need to basically hammer in the pin on my Flysplit. But after 8 years of hard abuse and use, it’s really not bad.
I can also see those connecting pucks wearing out which will eventually loosen the connection. I wonder how that will hold up in the long run. Either way, it’s very impressive home build that’s for sure!
