We offer a comprehensive repair service for all different types of surfcraft and fiberglass. Come by Zak Surfboards 307 Victoria Rd Thornbury Victoria 3071 any time during store hours to organize your repair with our staff.
(Please note: We can’t do quotes over the phone due to the subjective nature of describing repairs – simply bring your damaged equipment in store and we can do one for you on the spot)
Before you bring your board in, please clean all of the areas of your board you wish to get fixed (scrubbing off sand, dirt, remove tape, wax & any other sticky substances you have on the board). Please also remove your leash & take off your fins.
If boards are surfed with cracks in them, or open dings/holes, they will get water-logged – increasing the boards weight, reducing flotation and eventually leading to de-lamination (separation of the fiberglass from the foam core). For all of our repairs, we use only the highest quality, high strength/light weight materials available. Our repairs are done with the finest clear resins on the market, insuring quality ding repairs. Our aim is to keep your board the same weight if possible and restore its overall strength.
Please do NOT use wax for a temporary fix on your cracks & dings. Wax “gums up” the ding and creates excess mess for the repair. Duct tape is a temporary “fix” on small dings and is far from 100% watertight. 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 every time – but 9/10 times we come very close. Color matching starts at $20
We are specialist in polyester (older style), Epoxy/EPS constructions (like Firewire, Slater Designs & Hayden shapes), soft fabrics and plastics. Quotes are only firm after the ding has been inspected by either our staff or one of our repairers.
