Rich’s Mctavish fireball longboard


with two main dings, the rail ding from The infamous Bournemouth Pier Crowds and the second from a surf spot in California and lots of other little dings from Byron bay. Its been said each ding tells its own story:)


(Fin punctured the rail)


(knee dent)



Forgot to take close ups – Its fair to  say repairs will always show though I try to hide them as much as possible, the extra fibreglass and resin required to produce a strong, lasting repair will by its nature have move material than the surrounding “original” construction – hence the slightly darker colour.

Enjoy Rich 🙂

poor photo I know – repairing a FCS FIN PLUG

Result, now to fix the multiple dings up nose.

I used a white tint to the resin to hide the four dings that needed routering clean – filling and then a layer of glass over the whole nose area wrapped around the rails.This glass panel was required as the nose had stress cracks all over it – notice Rory I squared of the Nose tip to remove damage and now it has a safer profile.
