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...
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.
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.
Those are joins in the edge material not cracks.
You have no problem at all.
I think this guy is right. Based on the location of the seams and the symmetry of the joints, It looks like they used short sections of edge for the more mellow bend inside the swallow tail. Most likely it was easier to make it that way than to use one piece for the more drastic bends in the pocket of the "v" and the outermost points of the swallow tail.
