Hey everyone, I have a question about surfing board maintenance and I thought I'd give it a shot here.
I'm working with a Sydney cleaners team and we received a request for cleaning a surf board. I don't have much experience with surfing ( I know it's a shocker, given the amazing beaches in my home town ), so I decided I'd ask someone experienced and Swellnet's forum looks like the perfect place to do so.
The surf board has some kind of hardened mucky hardened buildup and our clients wants to have it removed. I wanted to go the extra mile and apply a fancy wax or something ( you guys can give some ideas ) to make it look even better and show the guy how much we love our clients. Any ideas?
Thanks a million in advance!

Anyone with experience removing tailpads?
Reckon that stuff shouldn't effect the laminate?
I'm wanting to remove a tailpad. Was going to use a hairdryer to loosen adhesive. Reckon that orange power stuff would be the go to get rid of rest of sticky residue?
Wanting to avoid anything too serious so as not to affect the glass.
Any advice most appreciated
gently warm up with a hairdryer, then use dental floss in a kind of sawing motion to get between the tailpad and the adhesive.
you can use that orange stuff and paper towels to get most of the remainder of the residue off. if you're going to put a new tailpad on doesn't matter if there's a little bit left here or there, the new one will adhere fine. if you want to leave it as a clean deck keep working away with the orange stuff.
take your time and good luck.
Thank you mate

Don't leave it out in the sunlight after surfing. Cover the board in a sock or board bag. In your house, store the board in a dim-lit corner.
