RE: Kombat 107
There are special protective padding things you can put on the mast (below the boom). I've also seen people glueing some kind of EVO foam protector on the noses of their boards. Home made solutions like that can work. However, Starboard actually sells an item like this that is a perfect fit: see product no 13 on http://www.star-board.com/viewpage.php?page_id=11 . There is a link to a board compatibility chart. If your dealer don't stock these, maybe they can serve as an inspiration for a home made solution.
