We repair polyester and epoxy fiberglass and plastic, including surfboards, kite-boards, wake-boards, knee-boards, snow-boards, water skis, surf-skis, nipper-boards, canoes, kayaks and much more. Our work is guaranteed and is of the highest standard. Most repairs are completed in 5 days (if dropped in on a Monday) and a 24-hour turn-a-round service is also available by arrangement for an extra fee. We also offer insurance repairs and can restore that old classic that’s been sitting in the shed for years. Our restorations are done by some of the most skilled craftsmen in Victoria. Restoring old classics is an art form and needs an investment if time and tender loving care.It is inevitable part of owning a surfboard that dings, dents, and delaminations happen. In and out of the water, there are many causes of surfboard damage. Over time these dings will take on water and weigh down your surfboard and ultimately hurt your boards performance.

IMPORTANT REPAIR INFORMATION
Please clean the area of the ding. This means scrubbing off sand, dirt wax, or any other sticky substances you have on the baord. Remove leashes and board bags. (Fin removal optional)
Boards get water-logged which increases the boards weight, and eventually delamination. At Melbourne Board Repairs we use light weight material, as well as strong glass – making the board the same lightness, while improving durability. Most repairs are done with the finest clear epoxy’s on the market, insuring a quality ding repair.
DO NOT USE WAX FOR REPAIRS. Wax “gums up” the ding and creates excess mess for the repair. Duct tape is a temporary “fix” on small dings, however it does let water into your board, and essentially makes excess mess for the repair. Solarez and Quick Fix products, essentially are only a quick fix and will eventually deteriorate, flake and crack. It is best to get your board professionally repaired with professional repair techniques.
We can very closely match most colors of your board. Due to variances in paint techniques, we cannot guarantee a perfect match. But we will come close. Color matching starts at $10
We repair all types of surf-lifesaving water crafts. We are specialist in polyester (older style), Epoxy, soft fabrics and plastics. Quotes are only firm after the ding has been inspected.
Melbourne Board Repairs will not repair any SNAPPED water-skis, wake-boards or knee-boards. This is due to the immense pressure exerted on this equipment. It is unsafe to repair snapped “high performance” equipment, that is mainly used behind a power boat .
