Hanging your foil from your wakeboard rack

I hang my skyski on my swivel wakeboard rack ('05 X-star) and it works pretty good.
Purchased a strut support bracket from Skyski.com for about $85.

It comes with a foam block if you want to prevent scratching to the strut, but I keep my foil in its foil cover instead. This bracket works pretty well, but I do wrap a bungee around the ski itself as extra insurance.

I bought those same ones, however, I didn't think they were quite long enough. So I had a local steel fab shop make me some new ons a little longer. Now it really works good! I'll post some pics later.

Still Swivel?

Hey Airbornjim,

Thanks for the pic! That is exactly what I am looking for for my X45. I just have 2 quick questions, from the pic it looks like you still have the swivel functionality without the foil or board comming in contact with the tower, is that true? Also did you have to modify the tower plate at all to install the arms? Meaning for resale can you put the wakeboard arms back on?
