Care and Handling Guide – Formula Fun Foamies

To get the most out of your new Formula Fun® board, please adhere to the following guidelines:

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING

When exposed to high temperatures and/or direct sunlight for extended periods of time beyond ordinary use, the deckpad may bubble and/or fade in color. Boards should be stored in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight, heat or adjacent to chemicals. Any damage caused by excessive sunlight, heat or chemical exposure due to neglect is NOT covered under our LIMITED WARRANTY.

AVOID IMPACTS

Impacts may damage your board and any damage caused by impacts is NOT covered under our Limited Warranty.

GENERAL CARE

After every use make sure to rinse your board with fresh water to remove dirt, sand and salt residue; wipe down with a clean cloth or towel and store away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry location. Do not use solvents or cleaners on your board.

Ensure board is rinsed with fresh water, wiped clean and dry before storing in board bag or board sock.

Due to nature of materials used in the construction of soft surfboards in general, there will be some water absorption, which is normal and not a defect. This water typically drains after each use.

Do not wax the deck pad, it will be very hard to remove wax from rigid EVA material.

When riding your board, we recommend using a surf leash and staying away from sharp reef and rocky shorelines as the board may be compromised if impact occurs. Do not use your board in questionable conditions or extremely shallow conditions as this will void your warranty and may cause bodily harm.

This board is not meant for use as a lifesaving device.

Following the rules of surf etiquette will also bring a long life to your new board.

TRANSPORTING

When strapping the board onto vehicle roof racks, do not cinch the straps too tight, as it may crease the rails. Use a board bag as much as possible when mounting to your vehicle.

REPAIRS

For punctures, cuts or gashes: Use any epoxy based resin to fill hole, puncture, cut or gash.

For deck pads that come up we recommend: Super 77 adhesive spray, 3M® 5200, Sikaflex® 291, Gorilla Glue® and/or hot-melt glue from glue gun. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for correct and safe use of these repair compounds.

Ensure repair area is clean and dry before attempting repairs. Allow 24 hours for repairs to cure and dry before use.
