Can anyone recommend an epoxy ding repair kit? I don't mean solar cure. I've used Phix Doctor (resin and hardener) which was ok but I'm wondering if anyone else has any suggestions.
Selleys Knead It Aqua Epoxy Putty - dries quickly -minimal mess
Thanks slug frog. I wouldn't have thought of that. Have you actually used this stuff to fix your board?
Yes - repaired an epoxy board about ten years ago - fix still going strong. Big advantage one tube and no liquid. Have even used it on PU boards and took it to Indo with me on trip.
Like this one?https://www.sanded.com.au/collections/surfboard-resins/products/epoxy-re...
Ive been riding Epoxy boards for over 10 years now, but never had much need to repair just one crease professionally repaired and then just nail hole type punctures or seal cracks I've fixed with Epoxy solares type stuff.
What is the issue or hard part about fixing epoxy boards?
People always say how hard they are to fix, but I've never asked why? (or maybe I've forgotten why)
I did a few weeks epoxy boat building when young, and from memory it was much easier to work with than poly resin.

Thanks Sanded. I came across that one searching on the web. I thought 750ml would be way more than I need and it would just go off.
Epoxy has a 18 months - 2 year shelf life not like poly that has only 3-6 months, also can be used for repairs on poly boards also
Lots of repair kits on market - put surfboard on name and they charge extra - Go to Bunnings get same stuff and it cheaper
