Waterproof or Water resistant?
We should really make one big post with stuff like this. Port plug, the extra carry external battery, etcetc. Like a huge post about where to buy stuff, or links to posts about these things that come up from time to time that easy to miss, but superiour to have.
As you can see the OW got pretty soaked, had the plug in the charging port, but the button was full of sand, only hosed it down high pressure a day later. No problems...
I might just drop a piece of heavy duty tape over the power port to be safe the first time I take it out to the beach
The link you post for NDM plugs it bring you to the forum.
I want to buy this plug can you reply with the proper link,please.
@steeve here's the link to the Neutrik NDM dummyPLUG for Male XLR Receptacles:
At 67 cents each it's worth it to pick yourself up a few spares.
I have unintentionally left it outside during a hard rain overnight with no problems other than the pain in my heart upon discovery that it was outside.
Where did you get the plug for the charging port?
Thank's for your respond,I order 5 of them so I can give a couple to my friends.
@steeve I got mine from the Finnish guys who sell the Vega tire.
Plug made with 3D printer.
Edit: http://www.newtechsports.fi is the website.
It's in Finnish, which I don't speak, but if you send them an email they'll reply in English.
Some of them are on this forum as well (@NEWTECHSPORTS).

The controller and battery box are sealed with a closed-cell foam gasket which is not glued, and they also have vents. The vents are made of gore-tex like material that will repel water that is splashed onto it. However, the vents can't withstand water under pressure, which would happen if it is submerged. The gasket also can leak if enough pressure is applied. The vents are protected from direct water impact by the bumpers, so you should be absolutely fine spraying your board from all angles, riding through puddles, etc., but just don't play chicken with waves which could wash over your board.
