 This is how this rebuild started,

this Rusty Dwart Surfboard was in a bad way.

Initially it looked like the front set of FCS FIN PLUGS need replacement.

Looks can be deceiving!

Notice the dark coloring on the stringer,

this is due to being wet and led to the further surgery below.

I scalped this DWART.

A fun little project came my way recently by a good friend Seb the Photographer,

its a FCUK branded surfboard used as a shop decoration piece..its full of holes and

dings..this board is intended to be a gift for a very lucky young lady.

click to view the holes!

Pink underneath blue on top…My daughter has already spotted it (sorry its not for you).

So its multiple ding repairs – leash plug and a thruster tri fin installation.

To think this would of been landfill?
