Two of my iSUPs have a smallish hole in the side. I have repaired as per instructions - they hold air for a few days then the patch seems to bubble and the board slowly deflates - looking for recommendations for a better repair -they are both good quality boards.

"They are both good quality boards". apart from the holes right? How old are they? They all start failing over time.

I had a wee scratch pin hole in a 14' iSUP that holds 20psi. Recommendation from a yachty type friend used to dealing with the problem in inflatable dinghies was to use a drop of super glue along the scratch. Still going strong after a year and it was an instant fix too!

PVC adhesive did not hold-eventually air bubbles formed under pressure. I talked with local SUP hire owner who says he has same problems. Recommended WakeNSURF on the Tweed - they fix using ultrasonic technology
( no adhesives) - I have had no problems since.
