Emergency!! pictures included

ok so yesterday we got a lot of snow and some friends and I set up a few rails and such. At the end of the day i was checking my board for any damage and saw a reasonably large gash starting on the rear toeside edge, it is just where the effective edge starts. This is my old board that i now designated for park so i dont mind that there are gashes in it, i just want to fix them. I am going tomorrow with some friends and will be doing park and so i want to repair this tonight, i have p tex and wax should i just ptex it then wax it to make it even smoother? also, the edge is separated from the board a little where the gash is, how should i secure it down again. It is not a big separation at all maybe 1/16th of an inch and the gash is about 2.5 inches long, .75 inches wide at its widest point.

Thats what we call a core shot/edge blowout. Take it to a reputable shop and they can fix it. You can do it yourselt but it will take a couple days. You'll have to epoxy the edge down, let that cure overnight, p-tex then wax. If you just p-tex without glueing the edge, the edge will pop out popping the p-tex out with it.

any 24 hour epoxy should do the trick... the liquid steel kind of stuff.

Your going to be looking for something that comes in seperated containers. They'll come together but the epoxy will come in two parts. The glue and the accelerant. The glue will pretty much not dry unless you mix in the accelerant. Usually its a dual sirringe with one pusher, so it comes out in equal parts. I recommend this because there are kinds that you just squeeze out and let dry, those kind aren't as good as the mix kind. The mix kind is stronger.

if you really dont care ride it how it is. if you do take it to a shop you are going to be a good 10 days without that board.

From the looks of what seems to be a lot of corrosion around that edge inside the board, I would guess this problems been ongoing for a while and just now came fully apart. I don't think there is any hope for fixing it. But I have seen some pretty crazy repairs on this site.
