    Broken again...

    One day, hopefully soon, I will learn to leave the bad surf alone and play video games. I couldn't help myself today and was surfing shorebreak, turned on a small wave and felt my fin dig into the sand. Sure enough it broke the fin and pulled out one of the plugs. I dropped it off to get fixed, but I don't have anything to surf till then.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I can't afford to drop 20 or 25 bucks every time I want to go surfing. I'm working and borrowing my way through college. I am working on borrowing a longboard to hold me over.

    you can also keep calling the guy who's fixing your board and ask how long it would be and do it over and over it bugs them thats what i did once and the dude got my board back to me in like a week.

    that's a long time for ding repair.... the shop i work at, turnaround time is 3-4 days...

    we fix 20-30 boards a week... even more if there is a good swell.

    I've taken boards to 3 different shops (Aussie Island, Hotwax, and The Cove) and the turn around time was 1-2 weeks at all of them. Most of the shops around here use the same guy. I can do quick repairs with sun cure, I'm ok with fiberglass but my brother is pretty good with it and fixes most of our stuff. I don't want to mess around with fins and mess something up though, so I take that to someone who knows what they are doing.
