brand new burton..... damaged side edge : (

just got me a brand new burton blunt freestyle board and took it to the mountain a couple weekends ago. goes mean! but while taking it down the roof racks of my car have dented in the side egde of my board a bit and this has made the metal push out the base of the board slightly.. the acutal bit sticking out is nothing major, only a couple of mm. its just like a small dent in the board but instead of being dug in, its sticking out.

wonderin if n e one has had the same problem and knows how to fix this sorta thing.
cheers

I had an edge on an older Burton Bullet 164 (my first hand me down board, way too big lol) blow about 1cm deep. I took it to our local board shop (a good one) and they pushed the edge in where it belongs, and from there I don't know what they did exactly but the edge is straight and the bottom of the board is perfectly flat. It is just a little ugly, but who cares? I've ridden that board about 10-15 times a season for 2 years that way, only because it's my deep powder board, otherwise waaaay to big for me haha. It's repairable, I personally wouldn't take it on myself, because plenty of people are better at it than me, and it still only cost me I think 30 bucks with a wax and edge tune as well. They only had the baord for a day.

Pics? If it's a dented edge, you will probably be SOL...

I'll post pics of mine when my girlfriend gets home with the camera. The shop did a fantastic job repairing it. It really didn't affect my riding until it started to pull the edge out...

i have actually put no edge on because it would pull out again

Oh sorry, I meant the gash didn't really affect my riding until it started pulling the edge out, That's why I got it fixed lol. I probably rode it 3 times with the dent in it.
