Just fyi, I have many wakeboards and the jib base Hyperlite is the only one to ever stain my seat. My tower holds eight boards but when parked next to a houseboat, I have no choice but to take the houseboat facing boards out of the racks and put them on the seats. That has been my standard operating procedure for years. In fact, I tow with my main board (a Belmont 144) sitting on the seat. Never so much as the slightest blemish. That jib base, interior wrecker of a board, is a different matter. Only took one night to permanently mark my seat. In my opinion, Hyperlite has no business putting a board like that on the market. Every board has to sit on the vinyl at some point. Getting ready to ride, etc. Especially with a v-drive. Just my $.02. Not that I have anything against Hyperlite. They’ve been good about warranting bindings, etc. If the board in question wasn’t my buddy’s, I’d a taken it back to the store and politely told them to put it where the sun doesn’t shine.
