Just pulled out my gear for the up coming season,slapped my skins on my board and after i took off i had some residual glue stuck on my board,not seen this before and i am assuming my board is super dry as i'm not sure if i waxed it before i put away,or else could it be the glue? Thoughts,cheers

I have some old G3 skins and patches of the glue are getting a honey-like consistency. Probably time to reglue. The glue should always have a greater affinity for itself rather than for other surfaces.

my voile skins are several years old with one application of re-glue. last time i applied new glue .... my point here is, my glue is still gooey. i just removed the residual off my board and it took gasoline to accomplish that. i'm wondering if its worth another attempt at re-gluing or just order some new skins. a better part of the day today was spent mounting my board to the work bench, getting the glue off the board, and throwing down some new wax. now i need to address this glue situation. i'm all ears. cheers folks!

I have found scraping glue from the base with a razor blade is the easiest way to get rid of it. A certain level of caution needs to be used so you don't create a bigger issue. Nice an easy. A rag with rubbing alcohol will make short work of the residue.
