    Get some Ding Dough or Session Saver. They're more or less the same stuff, an easy to work with epoxy putty for less than $10. I've used it with all sorts of epoxy repairs. In fact I find the putty to be the best thing to use for epoxy repairs, and you don't even have to sand it, though it sanding does perty it up. If for any reason you're paranoid, and you want to go one more step. Do the repair with the putty, and then coat the repair with Solarez for epoxy. The nice thing about an epoxy fix, is once its done, you can spay some matching auto paint, a little clear coat, and you'll barely even notice that the boards ever been repaired.

    Agreed, I'd say the board repair "pro" needs a cracked nose too...

    Right, good god I was so and still am pissed. But I like the owner of the shop, who is not the one who repaired it, so I choose not to bad mouth the shop. I do, however, expect to get my money back...

    And as if that wasn't bad enough, after I realized that I had a huge, gaping hole in the front of my board on e again, figure I'll catch one more..my fin ended up slicing a nice deep gash in my leg.

    I'll tell ya, I can't win for losing.

    Damn dude, that's sh*tty luck, just go get a ding repair kit and do your best to make it water tight

    Yeah, I should have done it myself, from the get go, but was worried because these Firewires are so different than normal PU boards and it's right on the rail on the front of the board. I've done a sh!t ton of repairs on my PU's.

    Lol...I think the reason I'm having all these little incidents is because I've been in the water so damn much the last couple weeks...and you won't hear me complaining about that. It is great living as close to the ocean as I do now, well at least for a couple months, while I do these couple jobs.

    But I do plan on moving here for good very soon.

    Dumpy shorebreak = some serious fun, but there are consequences, I guess.

    It'll all pan out, dropped it off at the shop where I should have taken it in the first place, so I am confident that it will be fixed right this time...but, from now on I think I'll just do it myself...I've just been so damn busy lately that I figured a shop would be able to get to it before I would.

    Understandable. Yeah, I like playing in the shorepound too, but like you said, it has a price, but it's better than not surfing at all for weeks at a time if that's all that's available. Luckily we're getting some actual waves for a change so things are looking up my friend. Hope it's fun up your way too.

    So how do you like the sweet tater? I've been considering that unit for a while, along with other similar models. I'm torn between a fish and groveler. Any input? Pros / cons?

    I love it, man...I ride it on LB days and have no problem catching rides, ride it on bigger days, too and have a blast. It's definitely versatile, I got the quad set of KS 2.1's in there, and she flies, boy.

    Oh yeah, and it doesn't come with fins, so expect to buy a set.

    DawnPatrol...hoping to get out this afternoon, I don't think it's chest high up here, but I'll take what I can get.
