what can you do about impact damage?

so i was riding pretty effing hard today in the park and i noticed when i got home that i have a hit against the sidewall which is forcing a small spot on the base to stick up. can you like carefully hammer it back down or something? I am worried because the base is now not flat and it looks like damage might be done to the sidewall. I figure I will just take it to the shop and see what they can do about it, but in the mean time, is this type of thing fixable? It seems like it would happen to a lot of people...

It sounds like you fractured the core and pieces inside a not in a flat lines anymore.

Kinda like here is a regular core

So is this fixable? Or is the board toast?

its hard to really tell without seeing the board, but I think chances are its toast.

forum destroyer... the metal edge is bent inwards as well. it looks like that is what is causing it the press up on the base.

then maybe you could fix that for a little more use of the board but i wouldn't consider it a permanent fix
