Board damage
 
Before I take this to the shop and listen to all manner of options; Can someone please take a look at this and tell me WTF is going on here??
This board (Capita DBX) was waxed the night before and this was the state it was in by lunch...

Anyone seen this and if so can it be fixed and whats involved??

Cheers

Well you see your problem here is this thing we call snowboarding. It's the act of riding a snowboard down a snow covered mountain that has unmarked obstacles on it. Sometimes these obstacles cause damage to the snowboard.

Personally I would be more worried about that grouting on the tile. That doesn't look too healthy.

Take a straight razor and just slide it across the base cutting off the dangler. Wax, snowboard, repeat as necessary.

My first instinct when I saw this was thr same thing.
"oh fuck I didn't think I hit anything!" But it surprised me to see that damage at that distance the whole length of the edge. Both toe and heel side but a little more on the toe (front foot especially severe) It looks like someone got at the few mms near the dge with a cheese grater!
NO DAMAGE TO BASE!

And yeah. The crew that did the renno on our garage were slackers but its my office so i'll deal!

The base looks absolutely prestine aside from a couple of millimeters next to the edges. The board is fine. If you're sweating this "damage" you should probably quit riding your board because it's only gonna get worse.

If its just a case of cleaning up, waxing and rising then great but...
This was after a few hours on a freshly waxed base and how much worse can it get??! It looks like its pulling away from edge in some spots.
Anything like that on your DBX Linville?

My DBX has taken some serious hits and has the typical battle scars to match, but no core shots yet. If it's not a core shot, don't worry about it. Just wax and ride.

As stated above.

Wait till you do this at the beginning of your season and have to buy a new board.

Now the boy uses this as a practice board and wall art. $400 out the window in 2.4 seconds....

He's doing it right! Hahaha. Gear ain't cheap but it's for damn sure meant to be beat on.

A freshly waxed base won't do shit if you smoke an unmarked rock/tree, which looks what you did.

Stop stressing.

Stop fretting and thrash that thing...it's part of the fun! You will never have a good time if you are constantly worried about your deck. I get that they aren't cheap and all, but seriously, don't worry about it.
In another season or two, you will likely be riding something different anyway and this board will either be a back up or sitting in the rack at Play It Again Sports.
