Any suggestions for a specific type of epoxy for this?
Marine epoxy if you can find some and use more resin than hardener so it resists cracking when the board flexes.

It doesnt look horrible though, I have 2 spots on my board where water gets in and i still ride the thing haha. To be retired after this season though.

If it does, I would just get a little epoxy & force it in there.

A hair dryer works good to make it flow easier.
I like to use a sanded flat bamboo skewer like a spatula.

Or just drip some p-tex into it.


I wouldn't waste money getting it fixed, it's pretty easy to do yourself.

Anyway, I'm heading to Breckenridge in a couple weeks and wondering if I need to get this redone as there seems to be a crack in whatever was used to fix it. The bottom and edge is smooth/straight.

Thoughts?

Lamps looks ok to me, if you were really ambitious you could sand the patch and then paint a little more epoxy on it
