DIY - Blown edge repair
 
6 Attachment(s)
Sup, well for those that have had the unfortunate result of blowing an edge on your precious board, here's a little description oh how I went about "fixing" mine...actually my initial thought was bye bye my beloved Forum Scallywag but since I don't have any funds for a new board I didn't have much choice but to try revive mine....using some edging from an old Burton board, g/flex epoxy, p tex and c-clamps, I managed to use 10.5cm from the Burton board, than I glued it all together still using the base layer since it was still hanging on, clamped it between two metal plates with 3 clamps for 24hrs, than filed the edges till they were as flush as possible. Than I ran candle PTex over everything and waxed the whole base. Will update after a few rides....one thing I had read is some people use screws on the new edge but I didn't have any or could find any in Sweden so am chancing it with just epoxy. Peace

i know the exact thread you used on trusnow (sierra, skierra) lol. If you used the thread im thinking of it should hold for at least the rest of the season.

Lol yep followed the exact one, if I had the patience and funds i probably would have ordered some new edging and screws from tognar...pretty pissed that my board isn't even a year old, so I hope it last at least this season....which is probably only 2 months left if that, been a mild one here in Sweden
