Wakeboard Insert Spread refers to the hole pattern on the wakeboard. It is the distance from any hole in the outer group of holes to the corresponding hole in the inner group for each boot mounting area (either Left or Right). For example, on any 2007 board, the outermost hole for mounting the left binding is eight inches from the leftmost/corresponding hole on the inside group. On a 2009 CWB wakeboard, the outermost hole for mounting the left binding is only six inches from the leftmost/corresponding hole on the inside group. See the image below.
