Cabrinha foil double agent on a crazyfly f-lite board

Postby danielkeder » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:32 pm

Hi there!
Can anyone give me an advice how to mount Cabrinha double agent foil on a Crazyfly F-lite board?

The problem is that cabrinha foil has the spacing between holes 110mm but the crazyfly f-lite pre-drilled holes are 125mm and then further spacing is in 2x 20mm (so 165mm will fit)

Is there such thing as adapter that would convert the spacing? Anyone have experience with something like this?

Thanks!!!

Use 2 of the existing inserts and drill two more holes wherever needed. Those no-volume, TT-construction boards can be easily drilled and a M8 bolt going through with appropriate cup washers and nuts will be just fine. And it will be probably much stronger than the inserts or the threads in the foil plate in case of hitting the bottom. Nylon cup washers with countersunk heads are not a hazard for your feet and they actually provide a bit of guidance in terms of foot placement.

On the other hand, you'll probably replace the foil way before you replace that board, so fill those holes with epoxy once you're done.

make some extra holes or craft some adapter plate.

I have the exact same board and the same problem with my slingshot aluminum mast/plate attachments. I also have a foil mount on another board. I also have a ghostwhisperer that fits on the board like a glove.

Here is my recommendation: get a carbon foil for that particular board. It is a sweet setup. I ride that board strapless. With a carbon foil and the boards low volume the board will lay on its side in the water for a super easy no hands strapless waterstart.

That is what I would do / did.
