Back rest/block

Post by snigvan » Wed Nov 08, 2017 7:43 pm

Could you post a pic of your back rest block if you use one please. I have a Boost with a rachet system which could potentially damage the cockpit so I'm looking at alternative set ups.
Also suggestions of where to get cost effective closed cell foam would be useful.
Thanks

I can't help with the first, but I recall threads about where to buy foam; here are four:

A yoga block can make a good back rest and they're easy to find.

You could try here for closed cell foam if you're still looking, they stock a large range and seem to be cheaper than others I've seen in the past :) https://www.gbfoamdirect.co.uk/

That link doesn't sell any rigid closed cell foam so far as I can see, it all soft cushion foam.
