Dinged my rf addvance on the tail rail where I think the nylon leash cord hit it hard when wiping out. Just a small crack right where the bamboo deck meets the rail. Made sure there was no water in it, sanded it, patched it up with solarez. Noticed that if I pressed hard on the deck near the repair it would cause some movement in the new resin patch. Took it out anyway as I wasn't going to miss a surf and it was water tight. Ended up cracking along the same line towards the end of the session.
Now I have it home with some paper towel pushed up underneath the bamboo deck where the crack is to dry it out.
Is the bamboo deck just layer on foam? Is there resin beneath it? I guess solarez is too stiff for the flex. Should I fill the area beneath the deck with some qcell filler? Should I put a bean sack or something to keep the deck pressed down? I will use normal epoxy resin and glass this time, just want to check if I should put some filler beneath the deck.
Thanks in advance. Still loving this board its keeping me progressing every session!
