Kiteboard surfboard epoxy ding repairs UK Bournemouth Dorset

By Jeff aka THE DING MAN

An  Adams Retro fish surfboard 

with its “Butt crack”  repaired…not an endearing term but never the less descriptive,

as this tail design often cracks due to flexing of the two tail pods.


Notice the extra glass which was layered to allow for flexing of the tail.

 Ding Man surfboard SUP Repairs on The South Coast of England UK


 The result of surfing our local reefs,

Jurassic coastline power.

Ben from The Wessex Surf Club 

 brought it to me for surgery.

All completed with the stringer reinforced + new leash plug and a

glass job that is a third stronger than the original,

4+4oz top 4oz original glassing to the tail

now 6+6oz top 6oz bottom.

Also Ben’s a goofy foot hence the leash plug positioning with in turn

maintains the strength in the rear tail area.

A caring repair by Jeff The DING MAN

What day of the week do fish hate?…Frydays
