DING MAN SURFBOARD SUP REPAIR

 The result of surfing our local reefs,

Jurassic coastline power.

Ben from The Wessex Surf Club 

 brought it to me for surgery.

All completed with the stringer reinforced + new leash plug and a

glass job that is a third stronger than the original,

4+4oz top 4oz original glassing to the tail

now 6+6oz top 6oz bottom.

Also Ben’s a goofy foot hence the leash plug positioning with in turn

maintains the strength in the rear tail area.
