Delam Questions

Here are some pics of my 2011 T. Rice 153. It appears that there is some separation near the front binding, causing the edge to deviate slightly from the normal camber profile. The base also seems lower in that small portion of the board, probablydue to the raised edge? Anyways, for those of you with more experience than I, is this fully repairable? If so, what would be the best fix?
I have other boards to ride, but my wife and teenage daughter both enjoy this board occasionally so it would be nice to get this taken care of.
Thanks in advance!
I've attached pics below.

Base pics

As you can see, there's no separation of the base and edge, I only ly noticed the dip when I was waxing and that spot was extremely difficult to get wax onto.

I guess you can get like a syringe filled with epoxy then carefully inject it into the gaps then buy butt load of clamps and clamp it down till dry.

I did this to my board last year, been on it about 40 days since with no issues...

Landed hard on a rock and the entire edge has broken upwards. The crack about 1 cm in from the edge is where the base actually separated. Keep riding her!

Hi, please describe the dip that you are referring to. Do you mean the edge dips inwards towards the core and topsheet?

Let me explain why I ask. Delams in that area almost always happen for one of two reasons.

1. The edge took a whack (or the opposite edge did). The energy from a hit can separate the laminates. At times this occurs as transferred energy damage from a whack to the opposite edge. An indent of the edge is a sign that this has occurred. A raised section of base or a base ridge that runs parallel to the impacted edge is an absolute indicator of such an impact.

2. The deck has given way due to normal flex (that would be a construction defect - and will typically occur when the board is new/relatively new) or extreme overflexing (can openers, catastrophes, etc.)

Yes, it is a small dip towards the topsheet, maybe around the size of a quarter. I think This is due to being edge high in that spot, but I honestly don't remember any serious impacts or major overflexing.

So if I understand correctly the edge is high (further away from the topsheet than the rest of the edge and the base) and the base is low (indented towards the topsheet) in a quarter sized area. Is that it?

Yes, that's correct, as well as also being a bit separated on the side, as indicated in the pictures.

I see. Have you flown with the board recently?
