Surfboard ding repair kits: they will defend you favourite stick from salted water

Surfboard ding repair kits are the best way to protect your plank from water, humidity, salt and sand grains.

Fixing dings is quite easy and can easily be done at home. Small-to-medium cracks are an open door to the self-destruction of your favorite surfboards.

Although you may repair a surfboard ding with duct tape, stickers or even wax, that will not ensure the longevity of the stick. As water keeps breaking ways in the foam, the entire board becomes fragile and may break when landing a small floater.

A good ding repair is done in less 10 minutes. You don't need to be an expert or a professional shaper to fix a fissure.

There are several surfboard repair kits available in the market. Ultra clear resin, fiberglass and reinforced polyester materials are everything you need to fix small and medium sized board dings.

Whether you found a crack in a classic foam or in an epoxy surfboard, there's always a solution. All you need is one of the following materials:

The Ding All Standard Repair Kit is an all-round, must-have option which includes resin, hardener, fiberglass cloth, a sanding sponge, mixing sticks and a cup, cover sheets, and instructions. Yours for only $19.

The Ding All Epoxy Repair Kit is a special resin for fixing cracks in epoxy surfboards. The package includes everything you need to quickly repair your stick for only $22.

The Ding All Q-Cell Filler is a powder material used to thicken and expand polyester or epoxy resin. If you only own one surfboard, it is definitely worth the $13.
