Darn that epoxy

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.

Darn that epoxy

Not a good idea to use a sanding machine and then find out not all the paint has 100 per cent dried! Maybe worse still is to wait the next day and find that putting the epoxy resin on top again darkens the paint. Not the end of the world but have a slightly dark red patch ten what I hoped. Ya lie and learn :oops:

Just fixing a dent in my SUP - my 4 year old decided the SUP was in the way her bike and go -kart so it was moved in her usual way - wham bam.

Think I need a proper sander as I never manage to get the surface smooth and totally level. Bombroof but maybe not the neatest :D
