It was only the top layer of fiberglass that delaminated. The bottom layer, which is epoxy, is still intact. So no, I didn't apply paint thinner directly to the foam. THAT would be REALLY dumb.
Also didn't use any fiberglass cloth or q-cell although the q-cell may have been a good idea. The area is so thin that I thought I could get away with just a couple of layers of resin.
And finally, no Jesus you can't have my board. Not yet at least...
Sorry for not getting back sooner, was at Yoga then had to crunch some numbers.
Okay, so i might not be followin you 100%, but i think i got what u did. the part that you cut away, that was fiberglass and resin. What you put back on, that was just resin. So the problem is, that's got no strength anymore and the first time you step on it, it's going to break. Anytime u patch a hole or cut one into a board, you have to replace what's missing with glass and resin.
2nd problem, and I could be wrong about this, cause all I make are polyurethane/polyester boards, if you put a polyester resin on an EPS (epoxy) foam board, as I understand it, it can damage the EPS foam. I don't know, I'm a hobbyist not a shaper or a chemist, but I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere.
If what I'm assuming above is correct, you might want to cut out the repair you've done and start over. Or just do what LB says and ride the sucker.
lies...neither duct tape nor wax shoved in a ding are water repellant. clear packing tape, on the other hand, is ok...on smaller dings.
if you value your surfboard, never, ever use duct tape as a temporary repair.
Could you guys just get a room? The joke is getting kind of old.

How many threads is the shelf life for this routine?
Tsk, tsk...lighten up, Francine. We don't judge your posts, who are you to judge anyone else.
Oh wait, forgot; WWSD.
Because you are, of course, holier than thou, thee, then & that. Just ask ya....you'll tell us.
