When a nice #Acre log comes in for corrective repair of a previous bodge.

The damage was close to the logo so no room for error,  after a rebuild and

black resin tint the repair was wet sanded and polished to be almost invisible.

The owner of this board asked if I could add his name to the underside along the stinger ….

and easy task from Ant to Pat.

Its all  in the details 🙂

I see this all the time 😦 the wrong materials used will  melt the core

of your surfboard. Notice the little diy tail ding  repair – it created

a hollow void through chemical reaction.

Replace with foam and laminate with carbon and glassfibre

to replicate the boards original construction.

Love this board a Quiver longboard .

An original “Fins Unlimited US 10.5 size fin box” retro fitted to Daryl’s #Quiksilver Longboard in place of a #FCS thruster setup now making this 90’s board into a more user friendly 2+1 setup.  Enjoy Daryl.

Fabric Inlay

  • I personally love this.



This fabric inlay was the artistic outcome as a result of this boards glassed

on fin impacting a 2m high car park barrier.

Please note the usual before photos were to graphic to publish.

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.


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If your board has an outdated fin system.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.

longboard #surfboard, agile turning was

the aim for the owner.
