I broke my funboard yesterday. I found out the fastest anyone can repair it is 3 to 4 days and by then I will already be out of town on vacation. I won't have a floaty board to catch waves enough to practice standing up. I need a beater board to buy from someone here that is close to Princeton NJ before this Thursday. I have that shortboard but no way close to even popping up on that one. I need an egg!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

Broken Board Blues

i saw someone break their board yesterday, what beach did you break it at? maybe I had a gruvi sighting
I will share a secret with you- (just don't tell any one tho- its a secret)- if you get a ding and need to fix it asap- you can use a vinyl sticker or tape to cover up the ding so the water will not get to the ding thus not soaking into the foam. So- take nice big bumper sticker and stick it over the whole area where your fcs fin plug came out- make sure you clean the fiberglass well (no wax) so the sticker sticks well. Use a 'cool' sticker too- if don't have one, just ask some of the other guys, they might have one for you. Check it after each sess to make sure no water leaked in. and since your just learning- you can probably just surf the board with two fins- it will just be squirrly... I checked out the pics of your board- its not bad at all, easy fix. Plus it looks like there may be no foam showing and no cracks that water can get to the foam??? then you don't have to worry all- get back in the water!!!
Just keep on posting dude- don't worry about getting banned or anything- just keep posting!
PS- you can have the pizza delivered!

You might be able to rent a board at one of those shops for a week for much less. Why not call and ask?
Please tell us how your broke your board.
