about 15km south is a great wave spot, but when we have been there 10 years ago it was military area
and a special permission was needed to get there. We went with some aussi guys who "payed the army guys with whisky an cigarettes .
fill the leash plug with wax. Do that before you sand down the board to make sure the is ZERO wax where you carbon should stick.
When everything is finished take a hole saw and open the plug, sand the edges slightly and you are done.
perfekt plan, just tape first the area you don't want to touch. then sand down the area you want to put the carbon, just slightly deeper than the rest. Tape off the bottom, put your carbon on cut it a little bit when you have wet it out (NOT BEFORE), put some peel ply on top. Let it cure, put anothe...
looks good ! But you shoul put some glas on the top and for sure on the tail rail.
If you want to have a great looking board again, take a 165g carbon and but only that over the tail, this will be strong enough add maybe 50 grms
and will look great. Bottom just put a gloss coat and you will be fine.
