Default is this repairable?

hey guys wondering what are you thoughts on whether this board is repairable or wall art. it happened while it was in trunk of my car during spring '09 season.. drove 2 hrs to big bear and opened up the trunk and saw the crack i think it was a combination of it being wet and going down the canyon rds it must've hit the sidewall in the trunk a bunch of times or put enough pressure for it to crack. the core seems to be intact but if you bend the tail(essentially test the boards flex) you can hear a slight cracking noise. its a 07 burton air 157.. its a great board and very stable all over the mtn so im hoping to be able keep it in my quiver as an extra but im still looking to pickup a new board(probably a park board + NS/Bataleon for freeriding)

more pictures: ImageShack Album




cheers

What illegally said, but what I do is I have an old board I cut the nose and tail off of. I cover the bottom of one board in packing tape (epoxy doesnt bond) and compress the board you're fixing using the cut up pieces from the old board. this keeps the board that your fixing from getting damaged from clamps. get at least 12 hours set epoxy and let it sit a few feet in front of a space heater for a few hours. not to close or you might melt your resin in the core and get delam

for heat would setting it out in the sun be sufficient? its around 71F in cali right now. i was also looking thru the different epoxys.. there seems to be so many out there just different strength levels. do u got a link to anything in particular that would be best for this repair?

Or just throw it out. Then jack someone of their snowboard, that way you'll get a new board and get a laugh out of someone crying. It's a win-win for you.
