SUP Repair Vlog / How To Fix A Trashed Board

Will walks us through his first major ding repair on a SUP and highlights the steps involved if you are thinking of tackling a repair.

Will has some knowledge behind composite repairs, but this was his first real crack at repairing an epoxy SUP. It’s the worst feeling knowing you have a ding in your board, so learning about the process can make repairing a board a little less scary. Of course, you may have some expert knowledge in repairs, so we would love to hear your thoughts on the process.

Will has a background in building boats as well as studying composite materials so this video is full of tips and hints – even if you don’t have any dings to fix, it’s super insightful!
