HOW TO CHOOSE AND INSTALL THE PROPER VENT
  • Plastic vents work well on both new installations as well as retrofits.  
    It requires a 5/8" hole to be drilled so if you are replacing a
    previously installed vent chances are you will just have to open up
    the existing hole a little.
  • Plastic vents have a shoulder that means you can apply more epoxy
    to get a good seal to the board.  The shoulder also means you won't
    see a hole that isn't drilled quite perfectly.
  • Plastic vents don't vent quite as quickly as the brass vents because
    the opening is not quite as big.
  • Brass vents look very classy installed on a wood board.  
  • Brass vent installation requires greater precision than the plastic
    vents but the smaller head is less noticeable.
PLASTIC VENT FEATURES
BRASS VENT FEATURES
  • We recommend the vent be placed in the nose of the board. This way you will see
    it and will remember to close it.

  • Placing the vent in the tail area means it will be under water when you are sitting
    between waves.  Give it a break and keep it high and dry in the nose.

  • Recessing the vent as shown on the right means you will be less likely to step on or
    snag something on it.
