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

The fin had been botched by another “repair guy”

Note how it leans to the right.

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.

De lam sorted, fin glassed on with fin rope and

multiple staggered layers of 6oz glass.

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?

If your board has an outdated fin system.

I can remove and replace it with your

requirements in mind.

Bit cold innit  !

Been burning through the propane trying to stay warm

in my workshop, though the pull of the ocean surf recently

has been strong – we have been blessed.

Fin impact caused the box to sink to crack around it’s perimeter and sink in ever so slightly.

 Surfboard repair photos are so boring 😉

Ben’s Cortez epoxy flight surfboard with a damaged

FCS FIN PLUG

Thankfully the plug was still in the board,

its best not to pull the pull out (to limit further damage).

Fin plug removed and damaged surrounding area reglassed.

Custom paintwork added and ready for the surf

Did you notice the surf mag used as a back drop?
