A buddy of mine bought a board for his daughter that got buckled in some shore break. I haven't got my hands on it yet but he says the stringer is not damaged and the crack does not go across the whole width on the bottom.
my plan is to cut out about an inch or less on both sides of the crack, and sand down about 4 inches past that on the old glass job. I'll repair any foam damage if needed. I'll then lay glass to fit exactly what I cut out and put an extra layer that overlaps onto what I've sanded down. Hot coat and feather everything together.
I feel like it's a good plan, but I've never repaired a buckle, because I feel like it's generally not worth it. But since this is right in the nose and it's a board his daughter loves and is learning to surf on, I figured this one was worth it.
looking for advice on what I need to do differently. Thanks.
