I was unaware of your back problems.
Sorry, and best wishes for the surgery.

And I'm flattered you remember my "Grammar/Spelling Police" role on this forum.
It literally brought a tear to my eye.
No, not literally.

If I'm wrong about you? I will apologize. I have been wrong before. (..but not often! Not about DC!)

So you tell me! Address the issues I outlined. Are you such a clueless newb ...not an insult btw! I and everyone else here was a clueless newb at some point! (...well, maybe not BA, but the rest of us? Absolutely!)

So,.. Are you so newb you need your dick held to pick a board, get a scraper, find a simple review or Amazon.com link?? Are you? You can't seem to do do math well enough to see that $2 a stick for P-tex at your local shop is better than 50 a stick for a dozen plus shipping???

Or do you have a genuine need for that much P-tex? Are you repairing that many boards? If so? How is it You know enough to do a rather involved P-tex repair to the base of your board, but you're mystified and asking how to go about fixing a couple of little top sheet chips??

See what I mean? Your questions don't gel with the things you claim as reasons for being here! We've had plenty of annoying, clueless, "over enthusiastic" newbs join, post n stick around after a bit of schooling. (...again, MYSELF included!)

Here's the 411!! If you are a genuine newb member? You are more than welcome here. By me as well as others. No animosity towards you whatsoever. And if I am wrong, I will gladly & humbly apologize! But,.. You will need to grow a bit thicker skin if you want to fit in here.

If however, you are who I suspect you might b? Well, we spend far too much time genuinely trying to help and answer questions when the troll is only interested in wasting that time and offer of help on inane, irrelevant, and stupid shit. Only hoping to stir up a bunch of trouble. WE HATE THAT!!!

So YOU SHUT UP!!! Lol!

I do indeed have a genuine requirement for ptex as I was spring riding @ grouse and the snow there sucked at the time and branches and a shitload of other crap was peering out from under the snow as well. And I've said to myself time and time again "the gouges are just cosmetic, won't affect my riding" but fact of the matter is they do. I'm dealing with core shots touching the edge, major gouges,etc. And I have gotten my board repaired at a shop for 15 dollars every time at a shop and I realized it just wasn't worth the money! Thus I inferred I could do it by myself. I'm new to this kind of stuff and all I wanted was some cheap ptex for base repair. My shop even said it would cost extra because my base was scratched to a very high extent. So now, chomps, I applaud you for providing a false perspective on my issues. I am not a troll.

honestly dude a single stick will last u quite a while, and if you indeed need more, buy a 2nd. i guarantee u wont need any more than 3. $6, BOOM! not breaking the bank there bud...

chomps im not gonna lie, i do find ur posts very long and boring majority of the time, although you do eventually get the point across and have a lot of advice to offer. not picking on u or anything, just saying u should ease up a bit..

It's tough being laid up with a back injury. I can't blame him for having a short fuse towards stupidity.

ever since i joined ive found a lot of his posts unnecessary verbal diarrhea, not just the last 5 weeks. but i do applaud his enthusiasm for the sport and love his passion for snowboarding. always willing to put in a few words of advice no matter the topic.

You in Vancouver?
Go to Sports Junkies.... they have ptex. Cheap.
Actually..... everyone has cheap ptex so don't stress over who has the best price. Find whoever has it closest and hassle-free-est for you.

If you have "a lot" of gouges, including core shots.... take it to a shop.

If you have a few shallow-ish dents, buy ptex and a metal scraper and give it a try. ~$3 of ptex and a ~$15 metal scraper will last you for years. Your first repairs will be shit, but at least you learn.

Yeah this season '14-15 is a BAAAD one to buy used boards hehehehehhe

Thanks, I'm probably just gonna go to sports junkies this weekend (I do live in vancouver). The boardroom sells the black candles for 2 bucks. I ordered this special ptex that bonds better to the metal edges for gouges near the edge.
