All four corners of this #kiteboard required rebuilding.

Carbonfibre was used for its properties of strength and cosmetics.

A successful outcome I think you’ll agree.

Ian’s kiteboard with a full width crease /split.


After multiple layers of glass – fared to maintain flex.


Awaiting south westerly’s.

Ian’s kiteboard which was presented to me with a weird buttock shaped bulge

on its planing surface, (I kid yee not).

I punctured said  bulges and they deflated with an audiable hiss..which I had recorded this.

This was caused by damage to the laminate which had absorbed water into the kiteboards core –

turning to steam in hot climate/car/sunshine.

Notice the witness marks in the core, taking the shape of the delamination.

I choose a Veneer sandwich repair.. the circular shape is ideal as it will dissipate any forces acting on it .

Just needing a hotcoat and polish to complete enjoy Ian.
