    Default Repairing a Wooden Skimboard

    Okay, so I just found an old school wooden skimboard. Need help on repairing the nose, the middle layer is the only layer out of five left and the damage is a 2 inch C-shaped mess.

    If you can't get a pix for us, go to (All Forums) at the bottom go to Old Thread FAQ. There you'll find a thread called (Repairing your wood skim), check it out.

    yeah, but if it just a wood board, just go buy a really cheap board. Buying a new one might be cheaper than repairing a very ysed board.

    If it real bad, and it's just a wood board.......just cut off the nose, round it, throw some epoxy on it......go skim, The End!

    would you tell an ocean skimmer to buy a cheap ocean board? it works the same way.. you get what you pay for. and support the sport. buy a board from a company that does something for the people who are buying the boards. or just fix the one you have

    I think everyone starts out with a entry level board, I mean I have with every board sport I am into. I dont have the cash or the money to buy a pro skate, skim, or mountainboard right out. I start out with a entry level board to see if I am going to even like it..... then move up to more name brand items. An even then I usually surf ebay for a good deal on a used board. For a student that works a dead end 9 to 5, this shit can get pricey. You have to be a smart consumer.
