Nickolas,

Screamer makes a good point about being catapulted (tossed over the nose). Your boom will probably be high enough to miss the nose of the board, but the mast can and will hit the nose from time to time. At a minimum, you will get compression dents in the board, which may or may not break through the skin. Gluing a nose protector on the deck of the nose will help prevent damage. It may look a little goofy, but better to protect the board.
