i just finished searching the forums and i found some information but nothing specific to my question. please help.
i have been fixing my own dings since i started surfing 6 years ago. never had one “professionally” repaired. i learned myself, nobody showed me. i learned by buying those ding all repair kits and just copying their instructions, and eventually started buying my own resin and glass in larger quantities and bought a real sander to speed it up.
when surfing with my friend the other day, she was taking me through the glassing process because she used to be a glasser. we were talking about a hotcoat, which i know exisits but never really paid any attention to. ive never hot coated any of my dings, ever. the ding all repair kit has no hot coat in it, so i figured when i finished the steps from the kit, i was done.
she said its amazing that my boards havent become waterlogged, and it was probably because of the large amount of resin i use when fixing dings. which is correct.
i just finished a huge job on one of the tails of my boards and i want to ride it. but now im nervous to do so without a hotcoat. where do i get hotcoat? i know its some sort of wax and something else mixed in with resin. also, its a pointblanks board, so how is theprocess different from a regular board? i found various opinions in the forums.
what do i do? i need hotcoat.
thanks in advance,
