James required a rail repair to his Bradley shortboard.

The only thing for a deep fin cut is to replace with new foam.

After reshaping this #usblank offcut and re glassing with 4oz hexcel

 the strength and flex characteristics are restored back

into this once damaged surfboard.

This lovely #Stewart #longboard came to me with”wonky” glassed on fin.

The fin had been botched by another “repair guy”

WP_20150507_007

Note how it leans to the right.

WP_20150519_003

Cut cleanly, that brown area is not a good sign…

Evidence of previous water intrusion.

WP_20150519_006

If in doubt cut it out, the flexy fin was due to the de-lam at the fin base.

WP_20150601_014 (2)

De lam sorted, fin glassed on with fin rope and

multiple staggered layers of 6oz glass.

WP_20150601_016

Some jobs just take longer than others, as the stringer and foam

were wet – well that has to dry out before any of the rebuilding can begin.

This classic log is now ready for pivot turns and noserides.

Wonder if the wonky fin helped his backhand turns?
