I took a decent sized chunk out of the fin on my board, I see that Jobe and Rainbow make repair kits but is there anything I can get at Home Depot that will do the trick? Thanks!

can't you use (I think it's called) Marinetex or fiberglass repair?

hmmm, I would post up on wakeworld and you will probably get a variety of ways to fix it. Just don't reply because I'm sure some punk kid is waiting to talk trash to someone for no reason on that site. HAA

good luck

Go to your local bodyshop and ask if they use 3M 08115, it's a 2 part panel bond.It will repair,bond just about anything,sands easy,water resistant. See if they can apply some to the missing chunk. Depending on size of damage it wouldn't use more than $5-10 of bond.If you leave it out on a hot day it will cure faster. V out the repair area before you take the board to the shop. If you had to buy the bond you need a special gun to mix it properly. It wouldn't be cost effective. My 2 cents

Any marine 2 part epoxy should work fine. If the defect is greater than 1/2 inch in depth, cut in a few small pieces of fiberglass. Make sure to prep the surrounding part of the board well for better adhesion.

Just ride finless, it will make you better anyway.

You could hit it with some JB Weld or some type of Bondo.
