Foil Mount 2.0 – Standard – for flat board bases
The Foil Mount 2.0 is a universal hydrofoil mounting system, this means that you can put a hydrofoil track on just about any surf, SUP or Windsurf board that you already have.
The FoilMount uses 3Ms strongest adhesive backing tape to stick to the bottom of your board. It will accommodate any foil that uses the industry standard 90mm track system (Slingshot, North/Duotone, Naish, Liquid Force, F-One, etc…). Foil Mounts are great for retrofitting boards with through bolt holes to give them the adjust-ability of a sliding track system. The FoilMount can be removed but cannot be reused. It is very easy to install, just prep the surface with alcohol, peel the tape backing, and stick! Make sure you install the FoilMount on a flat surface on the board (no rocker, double or single concave).
Standard Foil Mount
The standard mount is a flat plate that can be installed on any flat board surface. It is suitable for most SUP boards, hydrofoil boards, Skim boards, and Surfboards.

-4 high strength stainless slider nuts
-1 set of 4 flat head M8x16mm bolts for Slingshot and most other foils

Advise for mounting:
Preparing the surface: Clean the board surface where you want to place the foil mount with the included alcohol wipes. We recommend using 3M 94 primer for boards with PU coatings for the best adherence.
Choosing the right spot: Make sure you attach to a completely flat area on the board. You will typically ride with your rear foot directly over the mast to slightly behind the mast. Moving the connection point further forward gives you a better ability to pump the board without the nose hitting the water. Making sure to have good grip above the mast for your back foot and 2-3 feet forward for your front foot.
