    De lam repair

    I am wondering if anyone knows what the best way to go about a significant longboard repair. I have a 9' 4" mctavish and it has a lot of de lamination on the deck. I was thinking about cutting the glass off and spreading some sun cure under the glass then letting it sit out in the sun. I have alot of repair tools but have never done a repair of this magnitude. I would take it to Blair or Chauncey but i didn't pay much for the board and don't think its worth that much.

    not

    In the words of the great Turtle "bag it!". The problem with delam. is that is adds alot of extra weight to the board. If you just want a piece of poo in the water, then try to fix, otherwiswe-time for a new board!

    Been there already, all the thing did after the repair was pearl dive!

    it's probably not worth fixing but it you do, strip the old glass off and reglass the affected areas. i buddy did that and the board was usable but much heavier.

    Board

    Blair would most likely tell you the same thing as these guys. Its not worth the time and effort unfortunatly.

    There's a much easier solution than stripping off the glass. You can drill small holes, 1 mm or so, in the delamed glass. Get a syringe with a small tip, you can find these at craft stores because I guess there is some sort of crafty type thing girls do with them. Mix your resin, fill the syringe, then squirt the resin in the holes. Put something heavy on top of the area and wait a day. If you are lucky the new resin will bond the old glass and the foam and your delam will be fixed, at least for a while. You are adding a little bit of weight, but it doesn't have to be significant because a little bit of resin goes a long way in there.
