how do you remove the old deckpads?
Needs more research but back in my windsurfing days I would easily remove boom grip with similar glue this way: Find a large plastic garbage bag, seal the item inside overnight with a wetting of toluene, MEK, or any strong paint thinner. In the morning the grips just fell off.

I’d be very reluctant to try that with a board. Aluminum booms wouldn’t dissolve.

Start with less potent chemical then, but in my experience anything -- paint thinner, acetone, isopropyl alcohol -- works just fine. Pump it into a syringe, apply a little to the corner of a desk pad, then pull. Pull more and apply more solvent to the opening. Continue till the finish. With this method chemical solvent evaporates before inflicting any damage.

That’s different than putting the board in a bag with solvent overnight.

And my experience with slingshot boards is that the adhesive will not pull off the board with the pad, even with the procedure you describe.

In fact on the dwarfcraft micro the pads just peeled off like tape, but the glue was still stuck on the board. I have found that solvent and a lot of rubbing or scraping will get this off.

Sometimes, you can as you describe, pull off some of the glue with the pad.

Maybe I am just getting old or glue is getting better but the handiest tool I have used is a vibrating cutter with a scraper blade along with solvent to get the glue off of the board.
