What is the best glue/adhesive to use on a peeling bodyboard?

I will be going to Mexico for my Thanksgiving break and I was starting to pack things today. I usually bring my bodyboard with me so I can do some bodyboarding in the ocean near the hotel I stay in.

The problem I am facing is that the bottom of the board is peeling away from the rest of the board in one of the corners. See image.

Things I have tried…

  • Gorilla Glue and Krazy Glue; they both dissolve in the salty water of the ocean
  • A hotel employee offered to try some of the glue they have on the corner, it dissolved too. I do not know the brand of the glue they tried.

Keep in mind that if you recommend a certain glue/adhesive it must be able to withstand the salty waters of the ocean.

As a last resort to this problem I will use Flex Tape to tape the board together.

@mayer I will be scarce starting this upcoming week starting Saturday. Hold down the fort for me.

@mayer Thank you! I will try liquid nails and report back the results once I get back from my vacation (so I can make sure the salty water doesn’t dissolve the adhesive).

I bought Flex Glue and glued the board together. Time will tell if it stands up to the ocean or not.

I put Flex Glue to the test today and used that bodyboard today. It still holds strong!
