We offer a comprehensive repair service for all different types of surfcraft and fiberglass. For all of our repairs, we use only the highest quality, high strength/lightweight materials available. Our repairs are done with the finest clear resins on the market, ensuring quality ding repairs. Our aim is to keep your board the same weight if possible and restore its overall strength.
Come by The Surfboard Studios during store hours to organise 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)
Fin Box Install
BEFORE YOU BRING YOUR BOARD IN
- Clean all of the areas of your board.
- Scrub off sand and dirt.
- Remove tape, wax & any other sticky substances you have on the board.
- 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).
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.
RUSH REPAIR SERVICES
We can accommodate you in your time of need. Leaving on a trip? Need your magic board fixed for a contest? We have a 2 day rush option for an additional charge. If you have an extremely urgent repair – next day service is usually possible. Call 0438 416 738 for full details.
WARRANTY AND GUARANTEE
We offer a 30 day repair warranty. The repair starts on the date of the pick-up and ends on the 30th day after the pick-up. This warranty is subject to the area’s repaired during normal use only. The repair warranty is applicable on all repairs unless verbally noted but is subject to Melbourne Board Repairs discretion. The repair will be redone if the warranty is exercised.
Our work is guaranteed and is of the highest standard. Most repairs are completed in between 3 – 5 days, but a 24-hour turn-a-round service is also available by arrangement. We also offer insurance repairs and can restore that old classic that’s been sitting in the shed for years. Our restorations are done by some of the most skilled craftsmen in Victoria. Restoring old classics is an art form and needs an investment if time and tender loving care.
