Hey guys, I recently snapped a foam board and wanted to give a go at shaping (and eventually glassing... given that it comes out decent) my own board. Note I do not want to fix the foam board, I want to strip it down to the inner foam and use this to make a new board.
I am hesitant to order EPS for obvious environmental and consumerist reasons. Time is not an issue for me so I don't care if I shape it and it ends up looking like shit.
Attached are some pictures of what I have done so far and here are my questions:
Upon stripping the top layers of foam I unfortunately also pulled off some chunks of the inner EPS. Is there a way to fix this without adding too much weight (perhaps sanding and lightly patching with powdered eps and glue)?
The stringers on this board are terrible and I am wondering what to do about it. I thought about sticking some dowel rods in to hopefully introduce a bit more strength.
What can I do about the fins? They are these plastic "screw-in" fins. Could they perhaps just be glassed in place?
Thanks in advance for any replies! :)
