It has seen better days. This thing is pretty much gone, it's just the paint job, but even the wood itself. It's peeling on the sides so let's say goodbye to my little penny board let's cut our I may have some other things we'll try I feel like we should get started, let's do it I already broke the cube I think we're going to need more than just this cutting knife the board and the boat in half. What do we need to make a jigsaw? Okay, do it. I'm going to remove some axles. I don't work great. the queen of my little tobei well we have already confirmed that both our skateboard and our kayak work correctly now we have to cause a lot of damage we double the number of kayaks we have in less than half the efficiency and effectiveness of those kayaks is barely broken, so we have our board, we have our kayak and we have a bucket with a hole in it.

It's time to try flexible tape with all of these. First, let's test the cube with a hole. We'll fill it with water maybe while holding it close and then while it's dripping, we'll try to put a piece of tape over this and see if we can get it to stop dripping. We'll do this outside. because even if the Flex tape works perfectly, it will leak before we put it on and that will spill water everywhere, so knowing that the Flex tape is a threat will prevent the leak from happening, that could be true, so here, yes you can. stand here to my right, okay, and then when I reach out my hand, you can put the tape on my hand and you'll just slap me and I'll try to slap you.

I'm doing my best not to touch any. part of the tape so okay, okay, everyone ready for this, yeah, three, two, one, I'll say I'm surprised, it even worked even a little bit, it has a wrinkle. I'm sure it's not supposed to have wrinkles. We do not. They bothered to read the instructions, guys, we just unwrapped it and did it, okay, here we go, come on, come on, okay, slapping it on randomly isn't the best idea, applying it carefully works a little, there's still a little bit of leakage , says it works even underwater. I'm not sure if I really think you can still see water coming up a little bit up here and then obviously it's dripping down here and I think some of that is coming out the side someone just goes straight down yeah so lasts a few seconds and then again if you just need to bring some water very quickly if you want a hole that size to pour water like in the basement of your house and you can stop it only in the amount of hole that you have repaired made, you have probably You've been pretty pleased with yourself, oh you would be, except it's starting to leak faster.
Now we're going to try to fix my board, but my grip tape we think the Flex tape probably won't stick very well to the grip tape, so we're going to try to peel it off, put the flex tape on, and then put the grip tape back on. so we can still write it. I want to try it diagonally first, I want to straighten 100 sides to see if it works and then after that. Let's try to wrap it completely to see if you can fix what you've done so far, buddy, now it's upright, that's already better, yeah, and it flexes down, but once we get a piece on the other side , I hope it's okay, wait if a person completes this can really work, we'll see.
I'm very excited to find out. Okay, I think it's time I start trying to repair this kayak. Yes, you were going to test if you fit better in the kayak. I'm the only one here that technically fits the weight capacity, so start with that. I'll be right back maneuvering a kayak cut in half is unpleasant, so they've been doing this. I put on a swimsuit because in case in case you have a beautiful disappearance, okay, do you feel about this? um mediocre, a meal is probably better than me, well, it's great, there's nothing to put, okay, let's try the board, let's try the kayak, the first test is.
If we can load it without it falling apart hey I can load it it

does

n't fall apart I even shake it slightly and it

does

n't fall apart it's a good sign hold on I'll keep my board let's go out first street first free bag that goes out on the street, my two beautiful and beautiful Jace Porch, this is the one that Nate cruelly cut in half and then lovingly repaired and this is my board that we chose. This is actually my pedalboard to start with, so it's exactly the same. model exactly the same style that even still has the same glorious pattern on the back so now I have to stick with this and hope I don't die.
I'm going to start by putting my body weight because we can't stand it not being like that. I'm going to take me to ride it, okay, oh wait, wow, you're doing it, oh, you can't do any sides, oh, absolutely not, aha, improving the ice, okay, but I didn't fall, I didn't I fell, so this is how we're going to do it. A layer of Flex tape on each side definitely flexes. What we're going to do now is wrap it around it. We have enough Flex tape on this. I want to see if we can actually make this writable again.
Hey, I need your help. Nate and that's fine, so he can buy me a new longboard. I'm going to fix this. He supported my weight. He really impressed me if you were standing in the middle. It was working, but it did exactly what its name implied. it flexed and everything bent so I wanted to try it this way because it seemed like the weakest way to attach the tape. Now let's try it a little differently. I'm going to wrap it several times around the board. you get a little more structural integrity. I want this board to work again.
I think our board is repaired as much as possible with flex tape or else. I don't think it works very well, but maybe a little. better than last time, let's try it again, we've got, I'd say, seven feet of flex tape on this little board like, I don't know, guys, let's see how they head around you, okay, oh my gosh, okay, okay, you can say this thing is. I'm going to die very quickly. I'm not happy with this, but it's working. I did it well. I'm not bleeding and I kept all my teeth a good day, so the tape on the bottom flexed too much and the board lost a little. a lot of support, okay, but it worked, it worked in about five minutes.
I don't care, it works, that's kayaking. Well, our kayak is all repaired with tape. We'll see if that equates to being truly prepared in a moment. We don't have a There's a lot of ocean around here so we're going to use an unheated hot tub Hey guys, I'm in a hot tub, what should we call this ship before we destroy it? USS Phil. Oh, this right here, this is a plug and it's hissing, which means water is probably filling the kayak right now. I also want to see what would happen if I unplug it. If you lean here a little bit, bubbles come out, so just sitting down really feels like it's not like that. holding on too, okay, oh this is a bad choice, you shouldn't do what you're about to do, yes, good decisions were made.
I don't really hear it filling up with water, but you seem to be a Billy sitting in the water, you actually seem to be. leaking a little less now, although it's hard to say, it was elegant, well we tried to fix three things and with all three I would say the answer is the same: can you fix them? That answer is that you can get them back. As for serviceability, our buckets still leaked, although they were much slower or pennyboard, you could still surf if you really knew what you were doing and our kayak, well, it didn't float, you say it didn't have the stability you couldn't really maneuver .
It's the same way it felt loose so it's not what you want in a kayak, it doesn't respond to you so while they may not fail completely right away I would say no, I don't really. we repaired, we just carried them so they wouldn't break completely. the state why do you need the other foot on the board? I like it better this way, guys, you know, we always have more for you to see, click on the box at the top, watch the latest video and I'll see you on the next doctor then
