North Gambler track system. How to repair?

Postby wickedwim » Thu Mar 09, 2017 1:05 am


My buddy not only ripped his hamstrings to shreds but also Ripped out one boot of his track system. The inserts came through clean out of the rail. Warranty expired two years ago.

My buddy is all in tears to get his board fixed by the time he heals up,

I guess option 1 is fyberglass and epoxy, and moving his stance a little bit, but not sure it will hold his extreme kiteloop landings, or

Option 2 is drilling a hole, epoxy the edges so the woodcore doesnt suck up water, and make a 'cogua board' connection,

Any other ideas, remarks?

Track system is rubbish. Start a fresh, rip the lot out and epoxy some new inserts in. If you do it properly it'll be stronger than it was before with the track system. Just make sure you get your stance right cos you won't have any adjustment. Key is too make sure you clear out all the old crap before putting in the new.
