Burn Foot Plate Issue

So I recently bought a new burn, but as I was adjusting the outfitting, I realized that it only came with the Small foot plate. I am 6 foot with a 31 inch inseam and it looks like it would be safer for me to use the Large foot plate. Do any of you just use the small plate and then fill in the space with foam? Or should I call Pyranha and have them send me the Large foot plate?

Call up your local Pyranha dealer and get a large footplate.

The "footplate" in my Juice is literally a 1" bar. At over 6' you shouldn't have to worry about it, unless for some reason you're rocking size 7 feet or you're a contortionist.

If you need the larger foot plate (the one for smaller people) I have mine somewhere in a closet that I will never use that you are more than welcome to if a dealer gives you a hard time.

No, get the bigger footplate, and make sure you back it with the foam plate that came with your kit. It is also a good idea for you to put a small floatbag in the nose.

Thanks everyone, the dealer found the footplate and I have now backed it with foam and its ready to rock.
