If the board isnt taking on water and surfs good, then dont have anything done. The above poster is probably right though, you may have some bad delams. They would be worth getting fixed. They are easy enough to fix yourself, or you can pay to have someone to do it. Usually when you spot cracking, it is from delamination, meaning the glue underneath the cloth is loose, and there are soft spots on the board.

I've done both...(have Jon copy a magic board that was delaminating badly, reglass old boards myself) Both are a pain in the ass if you know what i mean...
Jon's hard to find these days but i would still do it...his boards are great and he's probably going to have the best shot at approximating the old board - trust me it wont feel exactly the same but closer than something off the rack...
Trying to reglass the deck your self is a huge hassle if you aren't already into repairs and isn't the project to learn on...

reglassing a board?
I have a john ashton that I love. I have used the hell out of it the past couple of years and really beat it up. Now the fiberglass is beginning to peel away in alot of spots. I had to switch to a backup board which is just not the same. I once heard something about having a board 'reglassed'. Is that really possible? If so, is it worth it, and where can I get it done?
