Board Care and FAQs
HOW DO I REPAIR MY SURFBOARD?
If no water gets inside, you can repair it very simply with some resin. We recommend Solarez UV cure polyester resin, you can find this at your local surf shop
If water gets inside, with our flood-proof structure, repairing Sine surfboards is easy and can be done at home with our repair kit. This kind of damage is rare and would require significant impact from something like a fin or a rock
We are in the process of completing a repair manual and video. In the mean time, please get in touch if you have any questions. In short, the repair kit will consist of a precisely cut slice of wood for filling, glue, sandpaper and resin infused fiberglass patches
We recommend getting a good board bag to help keep your surfboard intact
CAN I LEAVE MY SURFBOARD IN THE SUN?
Because the structure is vented, internal pressure changes from sun exposure will not damage the surfboard. To this day, we have never noticed any damage from sun exposure. We still recommend keeping the board out of derect sunlight as the strength of wood and resins are known to degrade with extended sun exposure
HOW STRONG ARE THE SURFBOARDS?
Sine surfboards are extremely strong. With our current structure, we have never had a board snap. The deck has also never been pierced by foot movement. We'll be releasing more information on this in the near future
WHAT ARE THE SURFBOARDS MADE OF?
the hollow core is made of Paulownia wood and the shell is 4oz fiberglass with polyester resin
HOW MUCH DO THE SURFBOARDS WEIGH?
They are the same weight as conventional foam/fiberglass surfboards
DO THE BOARDS GET COMPRESSION DINGS?
No, the boards do no get compression dings. Without any damage, the board will look like the day you bought it
WHAT IS THE FLEX LIKE?
The surface of the board is harder than conventional surfboards as the fiberglass does not compress into any foam. The structure is also slightly stiffer. For this reason our models feature flatter shapes, well suited to this characteristic. Especially with longboards, they have been observed to have a more 'reliable' functionality, with less chance of the board 'flexing out' and behaving differently from one manouvre to the next
WHAT IS THE FINISH ON THE SURFBOARDS?
The surfboards are sanded to 600 grit which gives them a satin finish
