Parma makes an .020 thick, clear vinyl repair kit that works great. These are smaller patches that are good for fenders (#1 crack area) and body holes ect. They peel and stick right on, bond very well, and you can go back and race right away with quick repair. They hold out about as well as shoe goo and fiberglass tape with less hassle. Also I've used clear duct tape 2 layers thick that will get you thru about 1 race day (of mine at least).

I used gorilla tape on just about anything. and it lasts maybe two months on what it's on.

I switched over to this stuff called Tuck Tape. It's basically duct tape on steroids. You'll recognize it from it's name and it's red colour.

It's frightening to think that with modern medicine and all technique available to them, they can’t really help you; I should think in the old days you know you were better auf, because nowadays they’re all specialists, everyone’s becoming better and better at less and less! And eventually someone’s gonna to be superb, AT NOTHING!

If your having trouble finding Shoe Goo go to a skate shop, they should know of something considering how quickly skateboarders destroy shoes. I might try shoe goo considering I've got a near full tube of the stuff which is 4 years old
