Refreshing a boards top sheet?

Postby rtz » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:55 pm

I have an older CF board(06-08?). It's got a lot of abrasions on the top and bottom. When the board is wet; it looks flawless.

I haven't attempted to sand or polish or use any chemicals on it. Is there anyway to get it looking like it does when it's wet when it's dry?

Maybe spray on a layer of good quality clear coat? And then sand and polish it.

Who cares! its an old board. Ride it!

Otherwise sand smooth and polish. Or Spray clear coat on after sanding then polish.

Me, i'd just ride it.
