Foamies can handle blunt impact pretty well but they’re not so good with sharp objects. In fact, it’s pretty likely that you will get a hole or cut in the soft top deck eventually. Fortunately, there’s a quick way to fix a cut on the deck of a soft top. Also if you have limited tools at your disposal. I had a fin cut on my soft top recently. It was on a surf trip with absolutely no glue nor glue store anywhere near. The waves were foamie heaven so I was frothing to paddle back out. We managed to fix the board really quick and I was out in the line up in less than 5 minutes! All we used was a pocket knife, a lighter and surf wax.
