Hey does anyone know of any good products to fix a thrashed board? I live in west Michigan and there is a new cable park going in (placid waters), which I'm super pumped about, but I know I'll probably end up wrecking my board.... obviously placid isn't the first cable park in the world so i was just wondering if there is a product out there to solve this problem or if it really isn't even an issue... Thanks for the help!

Really it depends on your definition of thrashed. I mean if there is thikngs that are making the board not ride correctly then you have an issue, like a half tore off molded fin or something. But if it just has knicks and scratches on it I wouldn;t really swet it. They are sort of the nature of the beast here,l I hit tons of sliders, docks, rocks, stumps, really anything thats out there and destroy me boards, But I keep riding them till the snap or they are so chewed up they cut my hands up when I grab.

A good 2 part epoxy will really work to fix an major issues, but like I said, a wakeboard is a tool eventually they break.

i actually prefer JB weld. less brittle than epoxy and holds up to the sun UV rays better as well.
sands easy too.

Depends on What Kind of board you are going to repair, If its compression molded your ganna have a hard time making it work, If its a flex Board with more of a snowboard construction like a slingshot I can tell you how to do it so it looks new, For this board I used West systems epoxy. its pretty easy to do.
