Fin System Repair
All broken and damaged fin systems can be repaired.
In this case the side Futures fin box had been broken out of the board and a new one was installed and colour matched.
The special method we have developed in doing our fin box repairs is comprehensive and unlike the standard method that other repairers have always used. As a result we believe our fin box repairs are the strongest around.
Stand Up Paddle Board Repair
Our SUP repairs are second to none.
GCDR holds strong ties with some of the leading SUP manufacturers on the Gold Coast, which allows us to be up to date with all of the latest technologies and constructions.
SLSC Board Repair
GCDR is the recommended repairer for some of the most reputable SLSC clubs on the Gold Coast because of our consistent quality and fast turnaround.
SLSC boards and SUPs are expensive surf crafts and are difficult to repair properly, so it is important to have them fixed professionally.
Here is an example of a repair that was attempted by another repairer who used the wrong resin and was then done correctly by us.
Some forms of damage can change the shape of the board and may seem irreparable, however we are strong believers that anything is repairable – not only repairable but able to bring back as close to how it originally was a possible.
Here is an example of a badly damaged nose that was rebuilt and colour matched.
No Ding is too small or too large
Whether your board is snapped in half, or it has a small pinhole, we are more than happy to fix it.
This ding is a small-moderate sized repair job with a custom colour match.
What lurks beneath?
Beneath all surf crafts with a painted finish - primarily SLSC boards, SUPs, Tuf Lites and most imported epoxy boards you will find different coloured reinforced fibers and odd coloured foams.
Whether the ding is small or large the surrounding painted area needs to be sanded back for sufficient fiberglass bondage and strength (as fiberglass does not stick to paint). For this reason you will need a colour match and often times a polished finished, so you can always expect to pay more to have these kinds of boards repaired properly
