Bristol Repairs

Postby nsbentley » Fri Nov 27, 2015 09:05

Hi Folks, new to this but here we go.

I have a Starboard Carve 161 which I'm learning on, I managed to crack the nose the last week. Does anyone know a local 'ish' repair shop in bristol. Might get a sponge nose fitted as well.

Any help/recommendations gratefully received.

No repairers in Bristol any more, I'm afraid.

I've heard that Jim Brooks-Dowsett of Puravida ( does good repairs. He's over in Cardiff, though.

If its an old board and cosmetic is not a priority then do it yourself. Swimming Woggles/sausages make a good DIY nose protector. Worked well on my old Techno when I was learning. It never worth an expensive board when your learning.

As Martin says, Jim at Puravida.

Bob (a Nomad) recently had a board repaired by Jim and was very pleased with the result (and the price).
