Take it to a pro shop. Thell fill it in and make it look nice. How old is the board? You might be better off going and buying a new board. But yeh, just take it to pro shops and gets some quotes. It will never be back perfectly to what it was before, but the filler kits can do some help. I also had a friend who just slapped on some marine silicone sealant from the hardware store, and that worked out.

This is my old crappy slider board, so I dont really care what it looks like, I would just rather have it all in one peice. And if I could somehow glue that jumble back together then I will be stoked. If not I will ride it gap toothed LOL. But I hardly ever ride this board, so im not spending more than 10$ to fix it LOL.

I bought somebodies slider board for a good deal here on Wakeworld and it had some damage like that between the bindings, I took some Bondo fiberglass jelly and applied it with a trowel, let it dry and sanded down the high spots, and it has held up well all season, BTW Clay where do you ride, I used to live in AL up untill two weeks ago, and now I am in FL.

We lived near Birmingham towards the western part of Jefferson County in the Warrior River. I am missing riding pretty bad right now and it has only been two weeks. I saw your post about meeting Adkinson awhile back that must have been cool, he seems like one of the nicer guys in the sport and he is an unreal rider.

Haha, nice...just buy some resin ($7 for the cheap stuff) and fiberglass sheet ( $4-$5) and a cheap brush ($1). Just put the fiberglass resin all over the cracks, then put some of the fiberglass sheet and it should fix it up.

you must suck to fall on a slider like that, just kidding. You did a good job building that slider. Do you have the dimensions or plans, i would like to build one for myself. I assume it is floating?

Yeah, well that was my first time to hit it today. I only had like 10 minutes to hit it but I 50-50'd it and backslid it. Fell a few times too LOL. No but my best freind built the slider, and yes it floats. Maybe he will get on here and give you some dimensions. later, Clay

I heard Benny P's sister is a babe. And if he has that boat it would be the total package. Couldn't ask for anymore.
