Cracked Edge Repair
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hi,
Took my new powder board out on its first trip and think I hit some submerged metal with the inside edges of the swallow tail...not the worst part of the board to take a hit and luckily looks like no moisture got in, but was thinking I ought to seal the cracks...

I've got some Solarez
Wahoo International, is a leading manufacturer of UV cure resins. Sometimes called radiation curable resins. Solarez Polyester, ZEROVOC Epoxy Styrofoam Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) safe resins, Vinyl Ester, Microlite-white, Sponge-Rez and Neo-Rez.

and Surfco Quick Fix Putty
Quick Fix Putty Repair Kit

in the house that I've used on surfboard dings before...would either of these do the trick, or should I get something more specialised?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Pictures of the cracks attached.

Those are joins in the edge material not cracks.
You have no problem at all.

im not sure if its a huge issue mate. but i'm sure others here will correct me rather quickly and brutally if i'm wrong. my edges have maybe 4-5 similar cracks on both heel side and toe side. i think the cracks for me anyway are caused by doing rails. besides the cracks my edges seem fine, no burs or change to the shape at all.

I would go with what ETM says, he is very knowledgeable about board manufacturing...!!! ;)

You should look up some of his posts to find out just how knowledgeable... Hehe

Thanks for the replies!
Trashed my first ever board ten years ago by smacking sideways into a rail, so may be paranoid about the edges.
I've attached another picture...the gap in the edge seems to lead into a kind of small cut in the base but...maybe this is just how swallow tails are made?

I'll take your word for it mate!
Thought I might have given the board a bang at Sapporo Teine, a place I imagine he's familiar with.

Yeah, treated me pretty well. Very fast through the powder, hardly any back leg burn and surprisingly good on the groomers too (it's a 164 and I'm 5"9).:thumbsup:
