Hobie 70's Single Fin Shortboard Restoration

#1 Back to Top

Finally finished this restoration project up - http://www2.swaylocks.com/node/1023285 - there was at least three coats of primer on this board, which made it very hard sanding.  The nose and all of the tail was completely smashed, I had to pull all of the glass off around the tail - looks like it had been put into a fire or melted or something.  I would have liked to save the graphic on the bottom, but there were just too many dings.  

I stripped the paint

Acrylic Primer & Paint

Acrylic Gloss Coat

I'd psyched to surf this thing - its very floaty and looks like it will be a nice addition to the quiver - saved one from the dead.  

Next restoration project I'll work with some pigmented glass to see the difference - thanks for the swaylocks crew for the questions answered.
