QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hi Greenlight Surf Supply - I inherited a paddle board with the house I am currently renting. It is a rigid, 10’-6” board, older, and does not have identifiable markings as far as the manufacturer is concerned. There is “something” on the bottom of the board, just in front of the main fin (2+1 fin set-up). Seems likely to be a vent plug, so I’ll just call it that. The plug is rotten enough that it fragments when touched. It looks like there is an Allen-key hole in the the thing, so it must thread in, but the condition of the plug is such that putting an Allen key in the hole fragments the plug. I’d like to replace the plug. I realize that I am able to provide next to zero information for you to go on, but I’ll ask a couple of questions anyway. Are vent plug sizes for SUPs standard, or do they vary with manufacturer? If standard, do you have a suggestion for a replacement plug? If non-standard, is the range of possibilities small enough that I can just buy 3 or 4 sizes, with a high probability that one will fit? Finally, are there measurements on the board that I can make that would reduce the uncertainty about the plug size, etc.?
SUP Deck Vents do come in various sizes based on the manufacturer. If you would like to replace the vent that would be an option. Pleas eemail firstname.lastname@example.org with some pictures and we will take a futher look and instruct on the best options.
Does this auto vent or do you have to remove plug to vent
This SUP vent plug is full time venting through Goretex membrane. No need to unscrew the vent plug once installed.
I recently purchased a white SUP Goretex Deck Vent and have since lost the bolt (male end) of the plug. Is there a way for me to replace this part of the plug without having to buy an entirely new deck vent?
Yes you can order a replacement goretex vent screw plug in the drop down menu of the SUP Goretex Vent Plug product page. Choose Black color (M12 x 1.3 thread) or White color (M12 x 1.5 thread)
