Bulge Thingy in Base

OK, so this has been a fucked up snowboarding season for me. Snapped the nose off one board; put baseball sized dent in another; 5 stitches in my leg; hairline fracture through my elbow; and a contusion on my ass the size of a watermelon 2 weeks ago. The last mishap also caved in the edge of board a little and put a slight bulge in the base. So my question is has anyone dealt with that and does it screw up your riding or just have no effect at all?

Depends on where it is. If it's a contact point you'll notice it, if it's in the effective edge probably not. Best thing to do heat the base up and whack it with a hammer a few times till it flattens out.

Aye. A ball-peen hammer should do it. Nice and hard.

Seriously, some pics would be helpful, but you're definitely going to notice it if it is on a contact point like BA said.
