    replied to TT refinishing advice
    Het Smiling Taco,
    No short cuts, a TT board is a thing of beauty and also a very functional piece of equipment; it deserves respect. Put in the effort and the board will pay you back!

    replied to Timbertek wear and repair Pro Question
    A little "restorer" pre-stain treatment for timber or even bleach may get rid of the water stain. Remember the hot-coat will "yellow" the timber up as will a bit of UV light over time....

  • Hey Ocbuckeye,
    See my post re this on your other post - use solar cure or other epoxy resins. If they are too thick they can be thinned using acetone so they are "paintable" or can be...

    replied to Timbertek wear and repair Pro Question
    I have had the odd worn spot on my TT boards and it isn't a huge problem as paulownia is fairly water resistant. The fiberglass underneath the timber is the real water membrane and provided this isn't...

    replied to Potatonator vs addvance
    At 5'9" and 88kg I ride 6'2" Potatonator which is right on the upper limit according to volume calculator - the 6'4" Potatonator is a huge slab of foam - 6'8" and I'd be asking for...

    replied to Whats up with slater and firewire?

    Nine days in ten messy, sloppy wind swell - you don't need a Potatonator or Addvance; you need a new house near a more co-operative ocean!

    replied to Timbertech rail damage
    Unapproved
