Can I fix this myself?

This weekend I suffered some damage to the tail of my board. Not sure how it happened, I discovered it after lunch...I have no recollection of being hit or anything like that.





Not sure if you can tell from the phone pics but the topsheet is ripped, the core is splintered slightly and the edge tip is lightly dented.

Anyway, can I fix this myself? C-clamp and some sort of glue?

Clean it out, 5 minute epoxy and a clamp with wood on each side. Nothing will make it good as new and that is going to be a trouble spot from now on though. Keep an eye on it and re-glue when needed.

What he said and then add a Surfco nose or tail guard for extra protection.

I got one of those too, not as bad though. Used marine epoxy and a c clamp with wood to sandwich the board. Has held up fine so far.

How are these things? I may consider getting that for my GNU since its not fully metal-edge wrapped, but at the same time I like that fact because it seems like the nose/tail wouldn't catch as easily if I press.

I really like them and just put them on a couple boards in the past few weeks. I do cut them down in length a bit just for aesthetics though...just personal taste I guess. Since it is covering up part of the edge, I guess it would prevent it from catching as well, but more than anything, I use them mainly to add extra life to my board and prevent delams by protecting the nose and tail.

I know you can buy them direct from Surfco Hawaii,but I usually buy them off e-bay.

After the fix. Not the most beautiful job, but I think it will hold.





I couldn't find marine epoxy at Home Depot so I used Goop AG All Purpose Product Information 0709

Says it will bond anything and is water proof. So, we'll see how it holds up. I'm going to pick up a set of those surfco guards as well.
