Ding All surfboard repair

Ding All surfboard repair


Founder Dale Christenson created the surfboard repair kit line Ding All as a class project at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, in 1985.

With $60 in his pocket and the will to fulfill a need, Dale mixed his first batch of Ding All surfboard repair kits in a 64 sq. ft utility shed nestled along the coast of Vilano Beach, FL. 

Dale started out repairing dings in the Flagler College dorms for surfer kids and his peers. With time in short supply, Dale started to assemble DIY Ding Repair kits for his friends to mitigate the work.

The first Ding All repair kits were sold at Sun & Surf Shop on Saint George Street where Dale used to work and master the tricks of the surfing business. 

The company went on to produce other lines, including Sun Cure and Surf Source Products.
