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.

Enjoy Ben:)

Surfing in Holland?

Well it so happens the North Sea provides plenty of fetch and range

to create surf on Hollands beaches. This link will provide forecasts etc,

Heavy Dutch winter swells ripped the leash and tail

straight out of this Matt Adams Surfboard.

Underneath damage from the Leash Plug.

After plastic surgery by The Ding Man,

Note leash plug swapped over to maintain strength.

FCS fin plug install

Can you see the light?

An example of FCS fin plug installation guidelines being followed,

it amazes me how some new boards don’t have their fin plugs

installed correctly or symmetrically.

I was taught to follow the saying..

“Measure twice cut once”

The Below surfboard had a rail ding that had been left unrepaired

for some time, the ingress of water and sand had caused delamination

of the glass fibre, which in turn lead to the foam core snapping,

(notice the dark line from the rail ding to the nose).

The damage shot after initial preparation to assist in drying out the core,

notice the amount of sand that migrated under the glass.

Finished & ready for the weekends surf,

Enjoy Charles.
