That looks neat! Would work well if you ride with both feet in the straps but agree a wider insert would be better for those like me who have a wondering back foot...

Yup.  The deck plate could also be wider than the base plate and overlap the inflatable deck.  That would help move rigidity out past the portion that would be possible from insert only.  They could also employ a keystone shaped insert (or an hourglass keystone) to add more width up front where the board allows and where it is needed.  Anyhow, I am stoked to see them pursuing this.  Douche comment alert: I do wish that they had started with my retrofit rigid strut handles though :).

Does anyone have any intel on the latest offerings from Axis, re the Froth Carbon Foil Boards? Some very interesting sizes in the lineup.  Little to no information/descriptions or images other than length, width, volumes.  Are they available and shipping
