Re: Plummet Mutant V3

hello, you can add a curved piece to the nose like the old f-one "Style" twintips ,make it as curved as you like to prevent getting caught in waves.
it can be bolted down with the fin screws

Re: paulownia wood

If you look at Slingshot boards they are made in the usa from what look like spruce
and they don't bother even choosing clear stuff ,there are knots visible in the wood core,
So no problem with local wood,

Re: Surfboard deck softened, no cracks, what's the best way to repair it (change the foam or inject polyester resin)?

you should check with slingshot but the core from what I see on line is EPS so big no no for using polyester resin ,
use only epoxy,
