Jellyfish Boards Plate to Tuttle mount

Postby tkettlepoint » Sat Jan 02, 2016 8:47 pm

I have been asked a lot about a plate to tuttle mount . I have had a few days off over the holidays so I decide to draw one up. Today I cut one on the cnc to see what it would look like. I will be making a split mould off the plug to make them.

Let me know what you are looking for and I'll see what I can do to produce these are a reasonable price. They will be 100% carbon.

going to have options for the Man-O-War


Thanks for looking and here to 2016 being a great foiling year

Nice work! Don't really understand why unless if they are for persons that want to ride very thin boards (4cm+) ! Over here the trend seems the opposite with people opting for the packing and installing facility of boxes (KF box/Tuttle).

The reasons I have heard so far
-Want to ride the same strut on different boards
-Want for travel and have a custom board. ( break down easier)
-my foil doesn't come as a plate mount and I really like it but want a new board
-my full on foil board it too big to travel with so I want to mount it to a skim or a kiteskate

When I did the first one a year ago , I put tracks in a board and to make a mould for a strut/mast with a tuttle top is a lot easier . So I had to make a adaptor plate so I could mount it too the board and fine tune it.

Sense then I have had about a dozen or so people ask about them. So why not

Will your adapter be compatible with Spotz foil ?

They use a tuttle head that is bigger than the normal small tuttle but smaller than the real deep tuttle. They fit perfectly in the Chinook plastic tuttle box.

Have the Spotz...fit perfect in the Chinook, you said that is not a true tuttle?
The Chinook sopose to be a standard "tuttle"...Im confuse right now.

btw, love the first prototype. If I use a plate mount, really want one with lots of surface. Really dont understand why to do it small. But thats my opinion.

Agree, loads of reasons having a Box to Plate adapter !

I have one (carbon adapter), and can be used on ANY board with my KFBox struts, particulary small and/or thin boards :naughty: :thumb:
