My skins do great on the velvet side going up the mountain, but I've been having trouble getting them to stick on the bottom of my board. Any recommendations on a product to use to put on the bottom of them?

go to home depot or a painter's supply store and get a roll of masking paper, just a big roll of 6 or 7" wide brown paper to iron your old glue into. keep going until only fabric is visible on the glue side. You just won't have enough paper if you think a stack of grocery bags are going to get you there. The paper is like a sponge that draws the glue into it when you heat it up with your iron, so you have to keep using clean paper to absorb the glue.
paint a coat of Black Diamond's gold brand? adhesive on each skin on, add another coat after 2-3 hours.
DO this in a garage or some space that you don't live in, the toluene or other organic vapors are real strong and just keep going for a day or so.
