Glue for LF Board Tread
I have a small piece of the grip pad on my LF board that was peeled back by something in one of my storage lockers......anyone have any suggestions on what kind of glue to use to glue it back down?

3m spray adhesive, or most any other heavy duty spray adhesive. If it is a small area you can use a small (very small) amount of 'superglue'. The only really downside of the superglue is it is hard and brittle. The downside of the spray adhesive is it is real easy to end up with adhesive all over your board.... off course it is grippy.....

you can get many of the spay adhesives in a small can of contact adhesive that you can paint on or roll on. that stuff works just as well. make sure you read the directions, you must let the stuff dry for a bit before you stick it so that it adheres properly.

I have used the 3M 90 Hi-strength with good results. (arisol can at the hardware store)
It sprays kind of gummy/snotty and will ooze a little at the edge so you might mask if you are anal clean.
My LF surfer is pretty utilitarian so I didnt sweat it much, wiped off what I could.

Just get some Goop at your local hardware store. I've done kneeboard product development for many years and Goop was the go-to glue to glue down the EVA kneepads to the fiberglass boards. You can also use weatherstrip adhesive, sold at most automotive stores.
