How to Fix an Air Bubble in a Boogie Board
Wipe the board down with a towel to make sure that it is completely dry. Lay the board on a flat surface with the side of the board with the bubble facing upward.
Use a razor blade or knife and cut an X through the bubble spot. Peel back the corners created by the cut.
Look to see if there is any raised foam beneath where the bubble was. Shave the foam evenly with the surrounding area with the razor or knife, if necessary.
Use glue specifically designed to adhere to foam in a hot glue gun and apply glue to both the foam underneath the cuts and the flaps as well.
Push the flaps back into place. Wipe away any excess glue. Place a heavy weight on top of the cut and let it sit overnight,
Fill in the cut marks with glue and allow to dry. Use fine grit sandpaper to smooth away any ridges.
