How would you repair this?

No idea how or when this happened today. I am very good at repairs, just not sure how to approach this damage. It is right on the widest part of the front of the board, toe side.

It is a 2011 NS Heritage

Warranty that shit if you can.

lol no dont bother trying to warranty.. that happened to my bros heritage and it was a quick fix. just make a small incision over the bulge with an exacto knife then heat it up with a heat gun and take to it with a mallet/hammer until its flush/flat again. you may have to use a chisel type of thing but there's higher risk that the edge will crack completely. once its flush just epoxy over the side if there is any gaps to prevent water from getting in and p-tex over the incision.

I'm stopping by the NS factory tomorrow to let their shop have a look at it. I am prepared to do the work myself though.

That's about what I had in mind, except I was thinking about cutting out the ptex over the bulge, using clamps and plates to flatten the core back down and epoxying new ptex over it. I think the edge is still in decent shape and if I'm careful it should bend back into place.

However, I'm worried about the separation between the sidewall and the edge. If I bend the edge back (it's pushed in and down) into place it's going to leave a gap between the ptex sidewall and the edge. I've never repaired anything like that before.
