A question for kneeboarders or ding guys.

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

A question for kneeboarders or ding guys.

Couple of questions. l would of posted this on kneelo(uk forum) however whoever is running that board, never approves new users(l've tried a number times).

I've bought a second hand fluid juice kneeboard, it has two piece big pad(covers well over half the board) on the deck, however its peeling off the deck quite alot along the stringer and l reckon l should just take it off and get another. Whats a good method for getting it off and cleaning off the board back to the glass, its been stuck down with some kind of glue.

Anyone know where l can source a new deck pad or is there an affordable alternative material that kneeboarders use?

cheers

Hair drier and an ice scraper to get it off. Turps to clean it up. As for pads, how about SUP suppliers?

Just be careful with the hairdryer. Don't just blast it on full, or you might delam the deck! Gently gently, catch your monkey!

Managed to get most of the pad off, using low heat, shame about the bits that are stuck fast (been stuck down with resin) :roll: . looks like alot of sanding still to go to clean it up.

SUP pads are not really suitable, as you do need a reasonable amount of cushioning for your knees and stopping delam of the deck.
