Board Bog

Post by Donweather » Thu Jan 20, 2011 10:15 am

Anyone heard of good or bad things about Board Bog?

Thinking about chucking a few blocks in my board bag for my upcoming OS surfari?

used it and it didn't harden, don't even want to know now because I intend fixing the nose ding on the Darcy with fibreglass.
Fong had a used Huie board
SHAPED IN ANGER
the same size, it slotted right in-between my favourite Pure board form RichQ that's 511 and the D'arcy 601, so I've still got 2 all rounders .

okay in a pinch I guess, even if it didn't harden it seals out the water.

Ugly stuff, no comparison to Sun Cure, Sun Set or wotever they're called, those are great.

Only problem with these is that airlines don't permit them, hence rather difficult to take on an OS Surfari.

bog feels like cement, maybe I didn't kneed it enough, supposing it hardens it might be your best choice

i got a small sample of the stuff with a surf mag i got from my sister at christmas time. i used it to temporarily seal a tail ding.
i kneaded it well,
it didn't harden, as daryl has said.
but it even lets in the water.
when surfing, it moves as you bump it, then you have to mould it in again.
when it came time to dig it out and repair it properly, just like wax, it got in everywhere & was difficult to get rid of - had to end up cutting it all out.

so, don, if your travelling, just bog it up with wax - it's just as good (or not so good)!
i'm glad i got the sample, as i would never pay for this stuff.
nature is a language. can't you read?
if you spend your life looking behind you, you don't see what's up front...
