How to use the product

We recommend rinsing the board after each session and drying it out of the cover before storing it. This way, the decorations will last longer and you’ll avoid osmosis and mould.
The air vent screw is located on your board. It’s very important because it regulates the pressure inside the board, which can increase with temperature or altitude. If this pressure is not regulated, it can damage your board. It is therefore crucial to open this screw when storing the board, especially in hot places such as a car or a sunny beach. If you have an automatic decompression screw, you don’t need to do anything – the board regulates itself.
To install the straps, place them in a V-shape in the predefined holes using the appropriate screws supplied when you buy AFS straps. It’s very important to use the screws supplied, as their length and diameter are adapted to the inserts in our boards. Make sure you insert the screws straight and not askew. You can also use antitwist to prevent the strap from turning around the screw. When it comes to adjustment, there are two schools of thought: those who put the whole foot in by opening the straps completely, and those who put only half the foot in by tightening the straps more. This will help to get the foot out more easily in the event of a fall. It all depends on your morphology and taste.
Start by inserting the black rope supplied with the leash into the plug at the tail of the board. Leave a little length to prevent the leash from rubbing directly on the tail and finish off with a small knot.
