Exclamation Sidewall damage from sand

My snowboard, a nitro rook 152, got pretty beaten up when we went to make a kicker in these dunes there was sand underneath like 15inches of snow and the sand ended up destroying my sidewall near the nose and tail and theres these small holes that go through the sidewall to the core it looks like.. and the sidewalls are rough all around over there. I don't know what i should do it looks pretty bad and i didn't realize the sand would fuck it up that much, any of your opinions would be welcome... i'm going boarding next saturday and plus this board has only been ridden like 7 times so im pretty dissapointed

How did the sand fuck up your board if it was buried by over a foot of snow?

I bet you hit something or dropped your board.
