Default Outlook for this patient?

Hi, I'm thinking about buying the board in the pic below. What do you think of the damage? I'm spooked by its location (center of board), and the probability for a reliable fix. If I bought it, I think I'd remove that section of the sidewall to get a better look and better access to what's going on. Any thoughts? Thanks.

So you're worried about it, but you'd cut a chunk of the sidewall out of it to see what's going on thus making it even more structurally unsound?

It looks like someone hit a bunch of rocks and dinged up the edge and sidewall. Doesn't look like anything to worry about.

Yeah, good point. It's probably not as deep as I'm thinking. How structural is the sidewall? Isn't it basically a cap to protect the edge of the laminate? The cut out piece would be replaced. Of course it's all easier said than done. It'd probably end up being a real mess to try that.

no the sidewall adds ALOT of support for the board, there are alot of factors that go into board flex and structure, rigidity of the sidewall is very important

Thanks. I was wondering about that. I know that urethane sidewalls wouldn't really factor into it, but that the the more rigid plastics typically used would have an effect. The simple method is looking better all the time.

there's nothing wrong with it. All my boards look like that after a week.
