How to fix epoxy surfboard with solarez?

I bought a second hand kitesurf epoxy board but it has a ding on the rail. I will fix it with Solarez epoxy resin which hardens with sunlight. I removed the shattered fiberglass. Most of the ding was only superficial so only the top layer of fiberglass had to be removed. However, there is a small spot in which I had to remove all fiberglass and the foam is now exposed. The places where I touch the remaining layers of fiberglass are soft to the touch. Should I remove all the the fiberglass and leave all foam exposed or can I apply solarez on top of bottom layers of fiberglass? I think a repair with exposed fiberglass would be stronger than a repair with just resin. Thoughts?

Anytime I damage one of my epoxy surfboards and the foam is exposed I use epoxy putty. There’s a lot of ways to do this repair, but here is why I like the epoxy putty.

  1. It’s forgiving for a first time fixer. You have plenty of time to shape it before it hardens. You can also wet your fingers and shape it like clay. (no sanding to finish)
  2. Isn’t dependent on UV rays
  3. You can don’t have to wait to surf it. You could repair it on the beach and get back out without waiting for it to dry. It can get wet while it’s hardening.
  4. Good for filling in a hole.

All you have to do to apply the putty is cut off the necessary amount, squish it around in your fingers to mix it, and apply it.
