In the back of the FoilMount installation guide there is a list of poor/fair adhesion materials. Polyethylene and polypropylene are a few of these materials and can be common on wakeboard and kiteboard bottom surfaces. If you're using a FoilMount with a board that has a bottom made from a material on the fair adhesion list make sure to use this 3M primer to prepare the surface prior to sticking down the FoilMount
This adhesion promoter can be used in a wide variety of applications. It is developed to be used in conjunction with 3M VHB tapes to increase the bonding strength of the tape. It is a popular tool to assist in applying automotive vinyl wraps. It increases the bond between vinyl wraps and nearly anything where a strong, durable bond is required. This product can be used to promote adhesion of 3M tapes to surfaces such polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PET/PBT blends, concrete, wood, glass, metal and painted metal surfaces.
Foil Fish Board Mounting Bolts
The 2015/2016 Liquid Force Foil Fish board used a through bolt connection that used T-nuts on the base plate side and a counter sunk M8 bolt on the board size. This is a different connection from all other hydrofoil board. This product is a special set of 4 counter sunk stainless M8 bolts with washers and lock nuts that are used to connect the Foil Fish board to All baseplates and hydrofoils outside the 2015/2016 stock Foil Fish.
This means if you get the Liquid Force Interface plate you will need to get this set of bolts to use the Slingshot base plate and Mast on your Foil Fish board. You DO NOT need these if you are using the Rocket Foil Board or the Happy Pill board from Liquid Force (or any other board for that matter).
Includes: Set of 4x 60mm M8 Bolts Set of 4x Stainless Washers Set of 4x M8 Lock Washers
FoilMount Removal Tool System Including both parts
This is the only way to completely remove a FoilMount from a board or other surface with out damage to the mounted surface. It is a fairly quick and easy procedure consisting of two steps.
Step 1: Use the included water chisel with you garden hose to cut through the foam between the FoilMount and the board or mounted surface. Step 2: Use the included rotary eraser with a corded or cordless drill to get all residual adhesive remaining on the surface.
Below are the two instructional videos for this process.
FoilMount Ridge Mount
The FoilMount is a universal hydrofoil mounting system, this means that you can put a hydrofoil track on just about any board you already have. Just Stick and Ride!
The FoilMount uses a specially designed 3M adhesive tape to stick to the bottom of your board. It will accommodate any foil that uses the 90mm track system (this is industry standard). It is a easy way to fix a broken track system. It is also 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 backing on the tape, and stick onto the desired location.
Ridge Mount FoilMount This is the standard mount with a relief cut down the middle allowing for a mount on top of a ridge on the bottom of the board. The surface still needs to fairly flat, but allows for a slight ridge where the FoilMount will be installed. It is suitable for most SUP boards, hydrofoil boards, Skim boards, Surfboards. If you have any questions about mounting compatibility email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

--Industry’s only learn-to-foil mast package --Start short, increase in length as your skills improve --Learn faster and safer than with a full-size mast --Great for shallow-water locations --Less frustration, more fun. FLIGHT SCHOOL CHARACTERISTICS
Foiling Flight School is an exclusive three-mast system that is compatible with Slingshot’s Hoverglide foil. Designed to take the pain, frustration and intimidation out of the learning process, Foiling Flight School allows newcomers to learn the basics with a shorter, more manageable mast and graduate in length as their skills progress. This is by far the best learn-to-foil system in kiteboarding. The concept is simple: You wouldn’t learn your very first kite skills on a full-sized kite, and now you don’t have to learn to foil on a full-sized mast.
