    Buckled Surfboard Repair in NE Florida - Jville Area

    I buckled my friends board (9'-2" Allen White) today. Does anyone know of a good repair person in Northeast Florida who can fix this board for me? I can do the repair, but it is not my board and I want this care of by knowledgeable and experienced person. I am new to the area and do not want to go to a surf shop where I don't know individuals. I look forward to your reply/ies.

    Dave Herrold (The Ding King) off of Mayport Rd. Hands down the best, most professional in town. Usually quick turnaround, but with the Leslie swell I'm sure he's plenty busy.

    Give him a shout at 904-994-0575.

    Unless the board was in rough shape to begin with, I don't think a repair is an equatable trade off my man. Even repaired a buckled board has the integrity issues of a state legislator. The Mark Foley of surfboards, know whut i mean Verne? If you've fixed a buckle before, i'm sure you do. I've never tried to tackle that one myself, i just say "adios good friend" to those boards. You might want to do your buddy a solid and pick him up a real clean used board and keep the buckle for yourself. Anyway, bummer. Hope it all works out.

    I buckled my 5'10'' Thanksgiving morning... it was only a partial up above my front foot...looking for an exit from a backside mini barrel did the splits thanks to the tropical wax mush still on my board and bootie-less numb feet after 2 1/2 hours of surfing... landed my fat on the front third while the wave compressed on the back third... easy fix...done them before... oddly enough had a board buckle last thanksgiving as well...
