Board Maintenance?

Postby dracop » Sat Aug 20, 2016 9:33 am

Hey guys, need sime help with board maintenenacr. See the pic. What do you guys do here?
My thought was to use a razor to cut out the loose top sheet and apply Gorilla Clear tape. Is there a better solution?

Surfboard ding repair kit. Make sure it has epoxy resin. Put some on there and then clamp it down so the sheet doesn't peel back.

I had this problem with the corner of one of my boards, I cut the loose bit off and used suncure epoxy to form a watertight seal with the part of the sheet that was left. Worked great and didn't peel any more after that.

It looks like to me that it is just a clear sheet of dura surf over a graphic sheet on top of the actual fiberglass. All you have to do is cut the peeled up plastic maybe sand it down smooth and stop riding into the sand. No need for epoxy or putty that is as long as it is actually just a cover sheet.

Yeah this is exactly what my board was. Problem is it keeps peeling even if you cut it as close as possible, that's why I sealed it off with epoxy. Took 30 seconds to apply and 3 minutes to cure in the sun, no big deal :thumb:
