I took off my racks for winter storage and thought how could I convert my wakeboard rack into a surf board rack, (by removing the centre bracket). So I first went to my local machinist and he suggested try down the street at the granite place they have a water jet cutter, $30 bucks later and a little bite of time re-installing the rubber and there ya have it. Money is a little tight at the end of boating season so this will work for a season or two.

Nice! I'd be curious what they'd charge to build a set, mimicking the ones you bring in...Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

Nice, I plan to do this this winter as well and I am going to try and grove the slot for the rubber where the old finger was.

our local skiers dealer had some surf tines made a year ago or so. they retailed for $200, so guessing that cost was somewhere around $100 or so. they just replaced the wakeboard tines. looked factory.'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

Does anyone know if having a water jet cut off a tine on a powdercoated rack would distort the paint all over the area of the cut? Or would it come out looking clean like T100's?

T100, I have access to a mill and I will either use a slot cutting bit of make a cutter to match the grove.
