MALAMA - CARE

LightSUP™ boards are extremely durable, but not indestructible! Here are a few tips to ensure you stoke will last season after season.

  • Treat it like you would any other valued item.

  • Keep the board out of extreme heat and sunlight when not in use. Any product has a shortened lifespan if left in the sun 24/7.

  • Clean the board with a normal household cleaning product when necessary. Most marks on the rail from your paddle should be removable. Magic erasers work great.

  • For ding/puncture repair:

    • For small repairs: This PDF file explains how to repair your LightSUP™ board. Repairs on LightSUPs™ differ from traditional epoxy repairs. Traditional epoxy repairs will not work on our boards. You will find that our repairs are a lot easier and a lot less intensive than epoxy repairs. Just make sure you use polypropylene plastic for your repairs, not polyethylene used for snowboards and skis. Here is a link to an amazon listing were you can pick the size rod you would need: Amazon Polypropylene Rod. Since gashes tend to be small, a 3/8 width rod should be enough for several repairs.

    • For large repairs: Repairs that are too large for the welding technique or need fiber reinforcement should use West System G-Flex Plastic Boat Repair Kits described HERE. These kits are also available on Amazon, make sure you get the kit designated for plastic repair and follow the instructions inside for polyethelyne plastic repair.

LightSUP™ Marine Grade Polycarbonate viewing windows are NOT intended nor capable of supporting significant weight. The window is designed for viewing only.  Please take care for your windows by covering while not in use.  Ensure the window does not come in contact with abrasive or sharp objects.  In the event of scratches, NOVUS 7100 Plastic Polish Kit - 8 oz. works well.  For small cracks in the pane, Weld-On 4 Acrylic Adhesive - 4 Oz and Weld-On Applicator Bottle with Needle works well.  Replacement panes are available for purchase.

If there is a workmanship issue, Bounce Composites will repair or replace the product at their discretion. The owner pays shipping to and from Bounce Composites if it is necessary to send the board to us for evaluation and/or repair.
