    Yep, and make sure it is dry before you do so....even if it means laying the board indoors for a month. Inject then place weight on top and let cure for at least 24 hours. In a few days it'll be rdy to surf again after injection.

    The syringe method works well, just make sure you leave an exit hole for excess to squeeze out of.

    Delams happen, and they are a bit harder to repair correctly and nicely.

    If you know of a 'good' shop to take it to- go for it, just make sure you know what kind of work they go there- or they could butcher your board.

    There are a few methods- try to search on the forum, they have been talked about many times before.

    basically:
    1. syringe injection- yes, you got it. you need to make 2 slits- one to inject into to- the other to work the resin toward and allow air out. then weigh it down. its a pain. tip: make sure you have a good big sized syringe. a small turkey baster works.

    2. cut out the delam and re fiberglass it. probably the strongest method, but much more time.

    3. vacuum bag it- my fav- basically the inject method, but using a vacuum and a bag to suck the fiberglass back onto the board to dry- instead of a weight. gives it an even adhesion

    4. start using your foot on duck dives... hard habit to break using the knee

    You don't sound like you are a pro at repairs, just take it to the damn shop.

    Stop having sex with your boards. It is not natural....
