EPS boards contain very small air pockets between the foam beads which expand and contract with changing temperatures. If a board is dinged while surfing and water gets in, additional heat (leaving your board on the beach or in a hot car) will cause the water to change phase in to steam and exert pressure on the fibreglass skin - pushing the glass away from the foam (de-lamination).
Greenlight's "VXV" Vented Leash Plug provides full time Gortex venting of your EPS and hollow wood boards without an extra part to install in your deck. The G-Vent's poly mesh screen size allows air (steam) out of the board to relieve internal pressure but will not allow water molecules in and is waterproof up to 25 ft. depth. No need to open and close the vent as needed in other surfboard venting systems. Just install and forget! Each vented leash plug includes an install kit containing epoxy putty and tamping stick with pre and post glass install options. Requires plug size 1" [25mm] diameter.
