Seattle's own - Bruce Lee!!

And yeah, I remember the pic of your kit on the dock - CarbOne and Slingshot. And I commented then, about your "protective handle" stuck to the nose!
Awesome... and well done Smile
I might just have to buy a Powerplate some day and try that myself - Foiling Kona's... Lightning's... Equipe's... and all, haha!

The Naish foil plate does not align with the Power Plate holes so I drilled my own. Seems all others do, but no Naish.

I donít think a standard longboard finbox placement would permit foiling. The Kona is somewhat unique afterall.

Update on the PowerPlate

1/ Now available in Deep Tuttle as well. See image below of all 3 fin-box types you can get.

2/ We have sold over 200 now and responses have been strong about ease of use,& durability of both the PowerPlate & the boards they are being used on.

3/ If you have a Naish foil or any other which have a different hole pattern we recommend drilling 2 additional holes to match the PowerPlate.

I don't follow this thread regularly so if you have any other questions just email us at windance@windance.com

I just wanted to post an update because it doesn't seem like there's too much info on these things online. I had my chance to try the Tuttle PowerPlate on my 122L Starboard Go over the weekend. My first two sessions were sub-planing and tuning the footstraps. I learned to start with them full forwards and inboard then go from there, I did the opposite and wasted lots of time. The third session I had it dialled with the Windance Foil Works foil and it was absolute magic. I've used a kite line leash attached to some webbing and bolted to one of my rear footstrap holes as Dave suggests in his video, it wasn't at all noticable and didn't get in my way when riding. I spent close to an hour on the foil and the board is holding up perfectly fine. I'll continue to watch it over the coming weeks. I am pretty excited about getting out on this setup again soon.
