    Removing Footholds

    I have some footholds carved into my '90 SJ and I've slammed my toe a few times on it from wipeouts. Anyway, I want to ride hard but not break my toes and have to be inactive while they heal. Any recommendations for removing the foot holds?

    Cut them out. Fill void with foam and shape for support. Glass over, smooth. Re-turf.

    What do you use to cut and smooth them?

    Personally, I have not removed foot holds..... But we have put MANY in. I would use a cut off wheel on my air grinder.

    US composites will have all the material you will need.

    If you like jumping your ski or subs, it's best to have your feet locked in for air tricks. Wear shoes, wrestling shoes with neoprene socks is a common durable choice.

    Re: Removing Footholds

    Are you riding without shoes? Footholds keep you from getting hurt, not the opposite. Removing them is a terrible idea IMO. I ride with DC's, the giant padded tongue makes it nice and comfy in the footholds.

    I wont ride without shoes. Not only for more grip and helping with toe stubbing, but works great walking on shore (rocks, grass, sand and parking lots)

    I ride in bare feet but that's only because I'm haggard
