I have an 08 Skywalker 131 and bought it used. The first time I used it this weekend after a 2 hour session the bottom surface started to peel back about 3 inches. It happened at the tip of the board and across the complete width almost to the fins. Is there any way to glue it back down or what product is best to glue it and should I try to glue/epoxy over the edge up onto the top of the board so it can't peel back again or will glueing it be enough??

That is unfortunate, but you should be able to repair it.

1. First, wash it out with clean, fresh water. Make sure there is no sand or salt.

2. Important - let it dry completely for several days. Use a hairdryer to speed up the process.

3. Mix two-part epoxy (I use West Systems) and thoroughly coat the delam area.

4. Clamp the delam area with lots of clamps. Wipe off any epoxy that is pushed out as you clamp.

5. Let it cure for a few days.

6. Unclamp and ride.
