Where should the Enata foil be placed?

Postby MCN » Fri Jul 17, 2020 6:34 am

I bought a Enata foil and will use it on a old board.
Have a deep Tuttle adapter that I will mount on the board (drill 4 holes,no tracks).
Where relative to the foot straps should it be placed to get the best balance?

approx 17cm from the rear of the board, according to groove who build race boards with deep tuttle fitting, but foot position will allow adjustment for fine balance.
drilling holes in the board?
are you fitting reinforcement bobbins?

Thanks,
Low tech project so drilling big hole first, fill it with epoxy/cellulose then drilling the final hole
