It is an unfortunate but inevitable part of owning a surfboard that dings, dents and de-laminations happen. Both in and out of the water, there are many causes of surfboard damage. If not fixed, over time the foam core of your surfboard will take on water, weighing it down, reducing its strength and buoyancy – ultimately hurting your boards performance.

Puka Patches

Puka PatchesPuka Patches are a handy, quick fix for dings on your surfboards.   Essentially a clear plastic membrane (like a sticker but with a bit of elasticity) these patches mean if you ding your surfboard, you can keep using it and get it professionally fixed later.  Perfect for any small ding or crack you might accidentally get in you board.  Suitable for both PU and Epoxy surfboards, these are a sure fire way to keep you craft watertight until you can get your dings fixed properly.

Puka PatchesTo use these Puka Patches simply clean any wax from the area surrounding the ding, then lightly scuff the surface around the ding so the Puka Patch will have something to grip onto (using the scuffing pad provided or a little bit of sandpaper). Then apply the patch pressing outwards from the middle, pressing out any air.  Now your board is watertight and ready to hit the water.

These Puka Patches are sold in packs of 5 & are really handy to have on hand when traveling  or to keep in the glove box of you car.

Available from us both instore and ONLINE
