With over 30 years of existence, Ding All surfboard repair kit continues to help fix dings and cracks. This ding repair system is designed for surfers to carry the kits along with them, so they can easily repair their boards on their own. Whether you need an Epoxy or Polyester resin, or ‘sun cure’ variant to fix the type of board you have, there’s a Ding All repair kit to help you fix it.
Considered as the ‘original resin repair system’, Ding All surfboard repair kit was created in 1985 by Dale Christenson as a class project at Flagler College in Florida. Funding his first repair kits with $60, Dale made use of a small utility shed along the coastline of Vilano Beach, Florida.
Initially, Dale repaired the college kids’ surfboard dings at the Flagler College dorms. But due to time constraints, he began assembling do-it-yourself ding repair kits for his collage mates to lessen his workload.
It was at the Sun & Surf Shop on Saint George Street where the first Ding All surfboard repair kits were sold. This was also the shop where Dale used to work and hone his knowledge about the surfing industry. Fast forward to a few years later, the company also produced other product lines including Surf Source and Sun Cure products.
