Stringerless epoxy crease repair

Post by JET01 » Sun May 12, 2019 4:40 pm

Never surfed a stringerless epoxy.
There’s a creased board on the bumtree which is a perfect size for me. (Gary McNeill entity)
It’s not completely snapped, has a crack along the bottom around the middle of the board.

Rough cost to repair?
How much difference from a freshie? It’s looks pretty good otherwise.
I’m pretty much done buying customs for now.

Is this a troll Jet? Why would you buy a fundamentally fcuked board? Forget about it.

The Ding King in Adelaide repairs creased and snapped boards every day, eps and pu foam.
Guaranteed better than new. I know you aren’t in SA but there must be repair shops that confidently and economically do it elsewhere.
Search “the ding king vehicle body shop” on FaceBook, some very interesting posts, mostly on repairing eps boards which have become their bread and butter by the sounds of it.

A stringerless EPS (epoxy is the resin not the foam) has all the strength in the sandwich/outer glass, particularly the rails.

It'll never be the same, regardless of the quality of the repair. It might be ok, but there's a reason it's cheap, and for sale.

I assume you mean this board

It is fcuked. Put on your jetpack and fly away.

Definitely not a troll. We live in such a f#@ked up repair by replacement culture that I thought i’d try to give it a second life.
I’ve just never owned let alone damaged a stringerless epoxy board. Worth the question. Especially seeing as such a board new is around a grand new.

You’re link didn’t work, it’s a swallow tailed entity by Gary McNeill. 5’11 x 19 3/4 x 2 9/16

People get so hung up about repaired boards. Carry on like they’re all pros on the tour. If the repaired board was a bit heavier, but still retained some of the desired characteristics of such a construction then i’d Just see it as an opportunity to try a new design/construction for cheap.

Just buy the fcuking thing then.

It'll snap at the edge of the repair, but you'll no doubt have some fun before it does.

I've done some big fin chops and my current one had a crushed chunk in the rail and a hole in the bottom. Happy with most of the repairs except the crushed rail. Don't think Id go for a creased board though.

Mate, no-one comes close to your experience in forcefully giving bad advice online.
