Valve issue is easy , I remove it and place it in my chinook mast base and slide the latch over the top of it, this makes it impossible to forget and it will not allow you to lock your mast down. Ps. Did all that and the board still fell apart Sad

Is it directly in front of the fin box. It could be the box wasn't inserted correctly when it was manufactured and started to pull out causing the delam. Unless you did something like keep the vent screw closed and head up to the mountains a new board shouldn't delam that fast because of vent screw issues.

No mountains for this kid, I am still waiting for the respounce from the powers that be. I will say the the shop I purchased it from has offered up a loaner until
This is resolved. I feel at this point it best not to disclose the shop until things have played out. Gman.

Plenty of Gortex one way valves on the market.
Most work really well, for a few months.


The newer Thommen boards come with a one-way valve, protected by a cap that snaps on top of it. Mine has worked fine for the two years I've had my CrossX 87.
