Chapter longboard restoration

Posted on


This chapter longboard has suffered heat damage to the nose. The foam had compressed and the glass had split the nose and pulled and twisted the stringers out of line. There was only one thing for it and that was to remove the damaged section. New foam has been put in on one side and then the other side has been split down the centre of the blank and wedges pushed into the nose to get some shape back. This was then filled and the wedges removed.
