It was good to see the return of the wind over the weekend, but for all of those who gave their boards a bit too much punishment, Ed Britnell at K-Bay provides salvation…
K-Bay have expanded their board repair operations and are now offering a premium ‘5 working day turnaround’ service as well as their standard service, and still with the same guaranteed quality of work that it has always been renowned for as board builders of over 30 years. Unlike for sail repairs, the time frame a good board repair can be carried out in is restricted by resin and paint drying times, so using the faster service means it will receive attention every day and be heated in a special “hot box” to ensure faster drying. Following an initial examination, a quotation will be given – costs vary depending on the size and nature of the damage and the detail and number of colours in the spray finish. Top quality materials are used throughout and in most cases the repair is indistinguishable from the original board and is usually stronger. The most asked for repair is to windsurf board noses as a result of catapults, but K-Bay will also repair any cracks, holes, creases or soft areas that need attention on your surfboard, wakeboard, kiteboard or SUP. They will also replace mast tracks, fin boxes and foot strap inserts or re-grip your whole board if you’re finding slipping feet is the main cause of not nailing those carve gybes!
Many of the UK’s top sailors and shops use their professional expertise.
