Regripping 2006 Isonic
 
G'Day
just bought a 2nd hand 2006 Isonic 115 and the decks a bit on the slippery side. Thought i'd re do the deck the usual way - wash clean with acetone, mask up area and then roll on a thin coat of polyester resin (UV stable) then sprinkle with sugar.
Any comments or advice?
I've recently done my old Windtech this way with good results but i'd completely stripped that back and repainted it. With the Isonic i'll be leaving what grip there is left and adding to it.

Cheers

Hi Baldy
Not sure about the sugar thing, but you can get spray on and roll on re-grip products that would probably be better that sugar:)

Plenty of choice around, here's one link to Gunsails version:

Hi Badly,

I use the Nautix one to fix this problem and is perfect.

Hope this help

All the best

Did you mean roll on uv Epoxy resin or Polyester resin? Because I don't think it's a good idea to coat the board with polyester resin it won't bond well to epoxy. Also you might want to take a look at this product.
