Foil repair pen is a quick and easy way to repair small scratches on foils. It is a crayon like adhesive pen that dries black with a quick drying, durable bond. The pen is easy to use, simply apply it to the damaged area, let it dry, then wet sand it. Read more..
The proper way to repair deep scratches or gouges on a foil is to use two part epoxy filler.
For smaller scratches, using this pen is a much easier and faster way to repair your foil:
I'm using it to repair some scratches on my foil, the front wing and the tail wing. Basically, if you're foiling in Hawaii in the waves you're going to scratch your foil at some point. It's really hard to avoid scratching your foil unless you stay in the deep water all the time and never catch any waves.
The effects of small scratches on performance are very subtle, for most users I don't think it has a big effect on how well the foil performs, but of course for high speed performance, a smooth foil is better than a scratched up surface.
The pen is like a thick crayon that fills the cracks. You can apply it over all low spots that are kind of white and scratched up looking. After it dries, you can apply a second (or more) layers to make sure all the low spots are completely filled in. Once the scratches are completely filled and the paint is fully dried, you go over it with some fine grit wet sandpaper.
My foil before scratch repair
Foil after scratch repair, the paint is wet sanded off the surface so only the paint filling the scratches remains.
I’m happy to report that repairing scratches on your foil makes a noticeable difference in how smooth the foil performs, especially at high speeds, I definitely recommend giving it a try.
Aloha and see you on the water,
