Ding in my rail

  • I managed to put a tiny ding in my rail the other day after I was exhausted after a long session. Can anybody inform me as to if it is something I need to worry about and what to do if so? When I run my finger along it you can barely feel the ding but I don't want it to get worse.


    Thank You

  • Don't sweat it. Must be a new board, right?

  • Brand new. I've only ridden it twice that's why I'm all worried.
    Thanks lbmalibu

  • Eventually you'll get a more serious impact that requires a repair.  Have the repair guy check it then. But if it feels smooth to the nail your OK.

  • I usually will grab a ding repair kit, light sand, and put a small amount of resin around it and then Saran Wrap it to the rail creating a tiny little extra seal just in case. Requires minimal sanding and time to just make sure.

  • Those LFT Firewires suck water in through even the smallest dings.  If you decide not to address it, be sure to monitor it for signs of leakage (water coming out after you return it to a warm room (a cooling board sucks in, a warming board pushes air out as it expands) or salt crystals around the crack) after your next few sessions.
