How to install a surf foil high density mast insert:
1. Center the foil on the board at the propoer location (See suggested placement below). Trace the insert and route for a snug fit. If there’s play in the box install lay pieces of fiberglass or carbon in the hole to take up space and provide more support.
2. Install the insert with epoxy resin, tape over the finbox slots so resin doesn’t get in and laminate a patch of fiberglass or carbon over the insert and the bottom of the board. If foam is lightweight foam use Gorilla glue to expand. Make sure you add a weight to the top so it does not move. Scrape excess away.
3. Cut through the reinforcement with a razor blade to remove the tape when the resin gels (about 45 mins – 1 hour).
4. Tape over the finboxes again and sealcoat with epoxy resin
