Everything About Windsurf Board Repairs

Repairing a damaged windsurf board is no easy task unless you have the right tools & know how. One website that really goes into all the detail you would ever need is www.boardlady.com.

The best place to start with learning how to repair a windsurf board is to understand how they are constructed, that way you know what it is you will be dealing with before you actually start digging around a repair. Get to know everything from the “EPS” expanded polystyrene cores right through to the reinforcements of either fiberglass, Carbon, Kevlar® or combinations thereof. The ‘board lady’ has a page dedicated to board construction right here: Windsurf Board Construction.
