stress cracks and repair ?
i have a few stress cracks on the nose of my ski and i was wondering whats the best way to fix these ? So far i sanded it down the the smc and brushed smc on it and sanded it again .. i added primer and some of the stress cracks are showing! My friend does body work but doesnt work on smc much, he seems to think he can fill it what primer .. what do u all think ?

Cracks need to be completely V-ed out. They will always come back if not removed.
The best material I have found for SMC repair is West Systems Epoxy resin. For smaller repairs MarineTex works great, it is epoxy based as well.
