Damaged Wakesurf Boards

Recommended Posts

Anybody got some slightly damaged wakesurf boards to sell?  I have fun repairing them and am looking to build my collection of boards. =-)

I picked this board up for $100.  Had a 4" chunk broken off of the nose.  A $25 surfboard repair kit, a $5 can of spray paint, and a few hours of TLC got me to this!

Here's the repair kit I used...

Do you have a "before" picture? I'd like to see what's possible when someone takes the time to repair a board correctly (as you have).

Crap!  I know the rule here is "pics or it didn't happen" but, I totally forgot to take the "before" picture of the board.

To address the matter of "what is possible" though, there was a 1" x 4" curved section of fiberglass missing off the very front of the board plus up to 1" deep of missing foam. I cleaned up the edge of the fiberglass hole with a dremmel tool, filled in the gash with filler (epoxy plus a lightweight filler), sanded it to shape by hand, covered the filler with two layers of new fiberglass cloth, sanded, added a top coat of epoxy, sanded, masked, and painted it. I'd say, as long as the overall structure of the board is sound, you can repair small dings easily and more extensive damage like this can be repaired with ~5 hours of labor spread over several days (waiting for epoxy or paint to dry).  The best part about it was that feeling of "becoming one with your board."  Never thought I'd get that life experience living in the Midwest!
