That looks loads better than the original decks, any chance of doing mine?

Thanks Steve. The pads are not exactly like I planned. The white was going to white marble, but my supplier didn't have that color anymore.

It was way too much work to ever do again. I've got about 10 hours labor in both boards.

Boards look great, should have got you to do the one I just redecked, such a pain in the but.
Great job!

Looking good! Out of curiosity, why did you vacuum bag the tail pad?

NC Paddle Surfer said...

Thanks Chris.

Brian, I vacuum bagged the tail pad to force the arch bump to conform and stick!

NC Paddle Surfer said...

FYI-the pads were glued.

It would have cost $40 more for pads with PSA.

$12 for glue is the better deal.

just curious, why did you change the deck pads?

The deck pad is slippery. I've been adding a little wax since last November. I finally had too much wax in it.
