Wakeboard repair

So yesterday my brother decides to hit a rail with MY board, and of course like i told him it damaged the board. A decent size chunk was taken out of a molded in fin as well as stripping off a bolted on fin as well. The bolts tore the board a bit where they were forced into the board from the pressure. Does anyone know about repairing the fiber glass on the board. Has anyone had it done? Is it worth it? It was a O'Brien Natural so it is not a cheap board to replace. Any advise is appreciated.

Call the company and ask about their repair policy. They make them, they should be able to repair them, too.

I agree. Like a dummy I once tried to fly my nephew's really nice $500 RC trainer airplane and was doing great until I had to fly it back towards me and everything was in reverse (right is now left, etc.). Any way, I proceeded to fly it straight into the ground so hard it even cracked the engine block. An hour later we were at the hobby shop and I was plunking down my Visa card for a new plane and engine.

Bottom line is that you borrow someone's stuff and ruin it you should replace it, family or not.

I was taught that if I'm going to use or borrow someone else's things, they go back in as good, or better, condition than I got them.

That's one major reason I don't lend my things, especially tools- they always come back worse. I don't even like having a car or truck serviced by someone other than a couple of people.
