Hi all,

Recently I thought of trying out finless and attempt to drill thru a screw that was seized on my board...unfortunately, i accidentally drilled into my board.. it's not deep.. maybe about 8mm deep, small hole too(smaller than the diameter of the screw)..I have since patched it up with silicon.. wonder if you chaps here got any advice to give on the repair, i dun want any water getting into my wakeboard's core.

Also, i am not really sure on the finless thingy, some guys say it doesn't matter.. others say it rides way better, I ride on a 02 premier 140. can't really ride well on my fakie, so a bit skeptical of going finless. Wonder if you guys got any advice to offer...

You should go finless for a while just to learn to control your board better.
your board is closed cell foam so if wont take on any water but I would put some epoxy over the hole.

if it's a DNA core, you should definitely patch it with some epoxy. The balsa wood in the DNA core soaks up water, and it compromises it's integrity over time.

good point thane, didn't think about it being a DNA. Yeah if its the wood core, def' epoxy that sucker.

Yea any surf board repair kit is perfect for it. That board was designed to be ridden finless, give it a go for a little longer and if it's for you bolt them back on.
