is my poor custom done for? board injury :(
 
Not sure how this happened (methinks a nice drop on concrete)

but tell me what you think :(

My only solace is that its right above where the board actually touches snow so it didn't really affect my riding after I noticed it:

and then there's also this on the top, I'm less worried about but would like advice on repair if possible:

No way! That's just the nose, it doesn't even touch the snow. Just keep it water tight. Epoxy, clamp, done. :thumbsup:

Edit: Now if you need an excuse to tell your wife/girlfriend then yes, you definitely need a new board.

haha no I love the custom! it's my 2nd one too (1st got RMA'd and they gave me this one)

That drop though... not only did it f*ck up the edge as seen, it actually made a pretty big bump too not sure if you can see that. Had me really worried but yeah... if it's not touching snow at all shouldn't be a big deal I hoped.

BTW just in case you didn't notice, first set of pics are for different hit (where edge is really bent in and the bump I speak of is) it's probably an inch maybe more above where board actually touches snow.

Last 2 pics is for a much less worrisome hit that's on the actual nose.

I know...I abused her this season by going into the woods prematurely

the irony of course is that the major injury was NOT from a tree or a rock...

Pretty sure you want to seal it up tho. Even if damage is not a ride killer. If water gets inside it's my understanding rot will spread.

Two pieces of thin plywood or such and a C clamp or two, epoxy the open areas around the edges, clamp it up between the pieces of wood n trim. I had some topsheet peels on my Arbor requiring similar treatment. Seems to be holding up well.

Good luck!

Thanks! Good to know she's not a goner.

We have all done stupid shit, but it is repairable, so just take the advice here, and use it as a beater for next season when you have a nice new board you don;t want to trash when the rocks etc are showing... Hehe
