Hey, your old boards are like old dogs, you gotta still love them. They ain't pretty but when fixed they will still surf like when they were new.
This is the best board I ever had. I surfed on it when it had dings so now I need a forklift to carry it around because it soaked up so much water that also turned it yellow. You can see all the bits of wax on the bottom, teaching me that bad things happen when you stack boards on the car without towels inbetween, or what happens when a board bag is left in the heat in summer.
These areas let water in. Dave told me to cut off the coating and let the board dry out for months in a warm room. Be really careful doing this- the fibers can jump into your eyes and box cutters are really dangerous- duhhh!!!
You might as well get all of them. Im planning on getting rid of all the wax before I bring it to the shop
In Feb., I am going to take this cut up board to
Dave Levy (401-942-0002) and he will patch it up for another ten years of surfing!!! It will be like new- wont be pretty though.
