Surfboard Repair Kits

If you are a surfer, then I am afraid it’s a fact of surfing life, you are going to need a surfboard repair kit at some time or other. No matter the surfboard construction (PU or Epoxy) they are relatively delicate and at some stage you are going to find a ding or crack in your favourite board. Two really important factors to consider as soon as you find a ding in your surfboard.

Firstly does the damage actually need to be repaired? Sounds daft but if a dent or crack, that has not actually broken the glass on the outside of the board, does not normally need to be repaired. However, if you can see an obvious crack (or feel one with when running a finger nail over the damage) then your surfboard is probably not water tight and the ding should be repaired before you go surf again.

In this case you are going to have to repair your surfboard with a ding repair kit. If you don’t your pride and joy will take on water, get heavy, and eventually delaminate or simply fall apart! Now the really important bit, before you even begin the repair, what construction is your surfboard. If you have an epoxy surfboard (Firewire, Slater Designs, CI SpineTek, Lost Carbon Wrap, Surftech, NSP, BIC, Cortez etc) you should ONLY use an epoxy surfboard ding repair kit - If you have a polyester board, often referred to as PU, you can use any of the surfboard repair kits we sell. This is REALLY important if you use a Polyester repair kit on an Epoxy surfboard the resin will eat through both the outside glass of the board and then into the EPS blank, or core of the board.

The result you will turn a potentially small crack into a rather large crater in your surfboard. If you are unsure if you should be using a Polyester, Epoxy, or combined repair kit to fix your surfboard please give us a shout directly. We will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
