I just got a crack on the center of the nose of my race board about 3.5 inch in length top to bottom and 2 small cracks coming from the main crack.
After inspecting the damage I noticed that the crack is only on the gel coat not the fiber, so far it doesn't look that is water going into the board. I don't know how it happened but I want it fixed before I bring my board back in the water.
Any ideas of who repairs Hobie SUPs in south east Florida.

If you want a professional repair job, check with a local surf shop and ask them who they recommend for repairs. If you just want to seal it and get back on the water, rough it up a little with some sandpaper, put some epoxy on it, and sand it smooth. There are also a lot of ding repair videos on YouTube if you'd like to do it yourself. Very easy to make a functional repair, but it takes a bit of skill for ones that look good with color matching.

go with Solarez its a UV cure epoxy, super easy and its awesome!


Super easy to get is smooth with some clear packing tape. Hardest part is to color match your paint. So i just owned the scar and made mine a nice patchwork square
