Probably the most important component on a modern windsurfing rig…this Radz Deckplate keeps your board connected with your rig…
This Radz Deckplate keeps your rig connected to your board, while maintaining maximum freedom of movement of your rig. This is key to your safety at all times on the water, and obviously key to your fun filled windsurfing!
This assembly of deckplate, universal joint and euro pin represents excellent value for money. Highly recommended product, and hugely popular.
We recommend that every windsurfer check their deckplate assembly very regularly to ensure that it is in good condition. Replace every 2 years on average, sooner if it is used a lot, more infrequent if it is only used occasionally but not much more than the 2 year mark.
This is suitable for all windsurfing boards, and for every windsurfer, from beginner to expert.
We also recommend that you always have a spare deckplate assembly in case you lose one at the beach!, or in case one breaks and you then have a spare!
Features of this product
Alternative systems use a more rigid polymer tendon, or in other words a plastic universal joint, to allow the free and restricted movement of your rig when connected to your windsurfing board. Those are ideal for higher performance windsurfing. This assembly uses the reliable, Boge rubber joint. This allows movement in all directions, but also allows some shock absorption of your rig on your board when jumping for example, or riding on choppy water.
The deckplate employed in this assembly is a design by Radz, which allows simple adjustment of the base position. It is comfortable to grasp onto, even with cold fingers. it is strong, with very little movement between the universal joint and the deckplate itself…it has close fitting tolerance.
The euro pin is machined from stainless steel, and is threaded at the end which is then securely fitted into the boge joint. Thread lock compound is applied at the factory to maintain the euro pin locked into the boge joint.
