    So I bought a sweet swallowtail off ebay some weeks back and it came with skins, which was nice but they seem to be having some problems.

    I’m not sure if it was a bad application of skin glue by the previous owner or that these bad boys are nearing the end of their useful life, but they leave globs of adhesive smegma on the base of the board when removed. The underside of the skins just appears to be a little too gooey.

    Thoughts?

    Could be a couple things: I’ve seen skins get like that after an extended amount of time in or near heat, like in front of a heater too long or stored somewhere hot in the summer (attic, shed etc.). It could also be the kind of glue used.

    If the skins themselves still look solid I would remove the old glue and start fresh. I’ve had good luck with Black Diamond’s Gold Label glue and if you haven’t applied new glue before I think this website has some good threads on how to do it.
    Good Luck!
