How to Care for Your Jackpine Wakesurf Board: A Guide to Long-lasting Performance

At Jackpine Wakesurf, we craft premium wakesurf boards using traditional surfboard construction and the finest materials. To ensure your board delivers optimal performance for years to come, we've compiled this helpful guide on proper wakesurf board care.


  • Protect from Sun and Heat: Avoid storing your board in direct sunlight or excessive heat. This can cause discoloration, warping, or even delamination (separation of layers) in extreme cases. Keep your board in a shaded, cool area to maintain the integrity of the EPS foam core.


  • Start in the Water: Always begin your ride by entering the water directly. Never start your session by placing any part of your board on a platform or dock. Doing so can damage the board and void your warranty.

Fin Care:

  • Futures Fin Systems: All Jackpine wakesurf boards utilize Futures Fin systems for easy installation and removal.
  • Secure Fins Tightly: Before each use, ensure your fins are securely fastened. Loose fins can vibrate and damage the fin box, as well as the board's foam core.


  • Fiberglass and Epoxy Construction: While fiberglass and epoxy offer a durable build, accidents can happen.
  • Minor Repairs: If the outer epoxy layer cracks or gets punctured, address the damage immediately before using the board again. Sealing the damage prevents water from reaching the EPS core, which can compromise the board's integrity. Epoxy repair kits are readily available at most surf shops or online retailers. We recommend Solarez Epoxy Repair ( for minor repairs.
  • Major Repairs: For extensive cracks or significant damage, it's best to consult a professional repair shop. Their expertise can ensure a proper fix and restore your board to optimal condition.
