The essentials of life? Food, water, and… shelter your surf gear!
When your board quiver outgrows your shed its time to expand! We stretched an old garden shed 7′ and did a complete overhaul.

- New cedar trim
- Set of surfboard racks
This Seawind seaplane suffered a big keel ding on a recent trip to the Arctic in NE Canada. The crew scored a sketchy and gusty Arctic Circle kiteboarding session on a remote lake. Back in Newport the Dingshack repaired the plane and added an abrasion resistant kevlar strip to protect the keel during beachings.
Hurricane Irene brought powerful surf and a good dose of anxiety to RI as we braced for a direct hit. Fortunately the storm weakened and tracked west. We made out with a few days of good swell before and after Irene hit and not too much damage.
There are plenty of broken and dinged boards at the Ding Shack from Irene getting fixed up for the next swell. Hope you scored some good surf over the weekend!
This C4 SUP came in for a rush repair at noon. The ding on the deck was repaired, painted and back on the water by dinner time the same day.
This brand new board suffered a freak accident and buckled in the shore break on its first ride. Fortunately we were able to repair it to the original shape with almost no added weight (the tweak-out Shimano bicycle scale showed the same weight before and after). We used come-along straps to restore the original rocker during the repair. Pourable urethane foam replaced the cronched foam, fiberglass repaired, and this broken board in back in the water like nothing ever happened.
