    I agree, it's not hard - or spellbinders does good work for cheap. I would offer to do it for nothing (depending on the severity) if I didnt have work and school. I wouldnt want to leave you more than a day or two without the board.

    I agree w/ fupafest. If it's just something like a rail ding you can sand it, clean it out and apply a glass " bandage". I tape the area w/ masking tape, making a rectangle a little larger than the repair area. After the resin sets pull off the tape and you have a neat looking repair you can sand down. You just have to be sure that if it's polyester resin you use the real Silmar type suff you get in a surfboard repair kit or at a shop, the polyester resin you get at Lowes is the same color as gasoline or maple syrup and the repair really looks like a repair. Of course if the board is epoxy you should use epoxy. It really is easy and rewarding to do.
