David Platt Surfboard Restorations

David Platt - "I have a small ding repair and restoration business based on the NSW Central Coast 100km Nth of Sydney, Australia. This site has been set up to highlight the restoration side of the business. Restorations take time. There is plenty going on behind the scenes. 
So have a look at a new blog in my links. "dpsr behind the scenes." 
This has incorporated the photos link and will show the day to day stuff that goes on with the restorations and a bit more."

Not sure about the age of this board.

The logo according to surfresearch
suggests this board is a 66 model.

Not original timber.
Crudely glassed and set to far forward.

This area was delaminated
and the foam was split.
The stringer was intact.

Nose area repaired.
Bottom gloss down.

Flat rocker.
Note the leg rope attachment.
This board is going to be a rider.

Fresh pigment work.
