All EPS/Epoxy boards can invariably get dinged
or damaged. In the event your board does get dinged
and it penetrates thru the outer epoxy/glassing
skin and into the foam core, you need to get it
repaired before taking the board back in the water
or you risk getting water in the boards. For a quick
fix, you can duck tape (or packing tape, which is
rumored to be more waterproof) over the ding to
seal the board water tight. Long term, you'll want
to either repair the damage yourself or get it professionally
To repair it yourself, we highly recommend using Solarez
epoxy repair resin
. It's basically a tube of
resin that you squeeze into a hole in your board.
- You first need to prepare the hole in your board. Cut out all of the loose and
cracked fiberglass and foam with a utility knife.
- Once it's a "clean" hole, find a place
out of the sun and squeeze the Solarez into the
- Next take it out in the sun and let it cure/dry
in direct sunlight for about 5 minutes.
- Once it
dries, sand it down to match the original form of
the board. Easy as that.
