Yeah just keep it going! Love to see it, something so satisfying about doing it yourself. I feel like I learn something new every time

Right on!

I was actually about to start another thread getting opinions but will just keep this one going!

I just picked up a Hilbers Scorpion that needs some attention. Mainly on the rails. A few shallow dings, a few spider cracks, some exposed weave, 2 heel cracked circles etc… nose and tail need a bit as well

So my question is:

Just repair all the tiny dings OR sand the entire board lightly (150 grit), apply cloth to open areas and then apply a very thin epoxy layer.

The only thing driving me towards the sand approach is most of the rails will need some resin.

I’ll get some pics posted but any initial thoughts?

Thx
Might change my mind when you post pictures, but I'd say repair each individually. Sounds like a lot of spots might be "keep an eye on it" stuff rather than in need of a full repair. Adding a new layer of resin on the whole board is unlikely to be worth the time, effort, cost, or added weight. Only time I've taken that approach is when I ripped off the old glass and relaminated the whole deck.

+1 go individually
My Fineline HighCat turned into a tank doing the whole deck after filling every dents and crack

Kept sanding at the delam area, lots of contaminated foam, filled it, sanded, laminated, and hot coated

Done, didn’t get too detailed on this one, already has so many ugly repairs. My primary focus was structure on this one, since the nose was only held together by resin. solid as a rock now.

Nice work on the resto!

South Coast surfboards is a south county SD staple shop. Started in IB, currently (or at least did when I was in town) has shops in OB and PB. Lots of SD and socal shapers have shaped/contracted (not sure what the actual arrangement is) for them prodanovich and ACE shaped a ton of boards for them. I've had Larmo and Becker boards under the South Coast label.

Sick, thanks for the insight.
