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If your board has an outdated fin system.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.

Forgot to take close ups – Its fair to  say repairs will always show though I try to hide them as much as possible, the extra fibreglass and resin required to produce a strong, lasting repair will by its nature have move material than the surrounding “original” construction – hence the slightly darker colour.

Enjoy Rich 🙂
