Recommended Posts

The pad is coming off my surfboard. What type of adhesive should I use to glue it down?

Any type of waterproof contact cement works. I use Barge brand adhesive on my kayak outfitting all the time.

I use a 3M spray adhesive for foam. It holds well and doesnt eat away foam or hurt resin.

Home Deopt or Lowes should have it in stock. Thats where I got it. Smaller places like Ace should probably have it to.

Maybe same issue, my swim platform pad is pulling up. Would contact glue do the same job? What if I want to replace it eventually? Is it possible to remove that stuff?

For the surfboard: call the manufacturer and ask them what they suggest. The might be nice enough to send you, or offer to sell, you a replacement pad with peel-n-stick adhesive already on it.

For the swim platform: 3M 77 contact cement, LocTite contact cement, or DanTack contact cement. Read the directions and mask the area well; Most contact cements need to be applied to both surfaces to work well, not just one side.

When it comes time to replace the swim pad, how much swearing will I be doing to remove it?
