Repair Advice Requested

Post by Marty Agather » Wed Aug 16, 2006 11:34 pm

I just received a slightly used Full Nose, circa 2003. It's got a bit of nose damage that appears as tho it could be a point of concern if not addressed at some point. At present it does not appear to be structural as it stops at least two inches forward of the front bolts of the front truck, so the riding stresses should be minimal.

It took a curb strike which has separated the top and bottoom skin for about an iinch and a half back from the point of the nose on each side. My source told me to take it to a surf board shop, but since I'm in the midwest, we don't have too many of those in the neighborhood.

Is this something I can fix myself, or should I send it off, and if sending, to where? I'll probably plasti-dip the nose after fixing for preventative measures, so I'm not really concerned about a perfect repair.

Any and all assistance is appreciated.

Thanks, Marty
