Quality surfboard repair by #jeffthdingman

5 year anniversary

I would like to say a “Big Thank you” to all my customers for their

support over the last 5 years,

especially to SORTED SURF SHOP 




surfboard repairs in Bournemouth BMTH

This board’s name made me laugh,

it was in for a rail repair…

have fun in the sun.




This #surfboard came to me on recommendation from #sortedsurfshop.

This board has a nice story relating to it, Diogo the owner initially enquired

with  Deano (sorted) as to an ideal small wave board for our local conditions.

This is the result which was custom made by Diogo’s  friend,

though this board suffered some damage whilst in transit.

After my repairs and paintwork this 5’9″ is seaworthy.


Enjoy Diogo.

Jeff did a fantastic nose job on my son ( sorry I mean my son’s board ) What an absolutely lovely chap who takes pride in his work and knows what he’s doing. Thank you Jeff we really appreciate the fantastic work and care you took over Dan’s board. We will definitely be a repeat customer ( not too soon I hope ). Dan in Salisbury

2016, a very stormy start to the year with the Atlantic producing consistent low pressure systems for us to enjoy.

Simon’s #fishsurfboard with a rail fin cut repair.

Luckily I have the exact resin tint to hide the repair, being translucent it was not possible to hide completely – though I think you’ll agree it came out nice.

Quality, caring repairs by Jeff The Ding Man.

Today was a day off mixed blessings, time to admit my old West wetsuit having survived four winters was fit for retirement.

But blessed with a new wetsuit 🙂

The knowledgeable staff at #sortedsurfshop know their wetsuits,  their wetsuit warehouse aptly named the #wetsuitcentre is where Jeff and his staff patiently helped me find the ideal winter wetsuit – be prepared to try on a few brands to find the ideal fit for your frame.

I now have a C-Skins Hot Wired 5×4 

I’ll add my review of this wetsuit later on in the season when the sea temperature fully drops out.
