Hairline crack

Whatsup everyone!

I just noticed that I have a hairline crack on the front left hand side of my 14' Hyside SB. It is not leaking air but it looks like if I hit something hard enough it could blow out.

What can I do to re-enforce it and fix it without putting a patch on it?

Thx for the help!

Chris

Thanx

I would still patch it. Reason being is even through the rubber on the inside is just as thick as the outside, you still have a vulnerable point there that a patch will protect.

Thanks Snowhere! I was just hoping not to put a patch on there. It looks like I may need to though. Anyone else have any ideas?
