Is this board repairable?

This is my girlfriend's board. It took a fall onto cement this past weekend and it's not looking so hot.

Is this repairable? If so what am I looking at price wise (ballpark)? It's on the nose and we only hit groomers - if it's not on the effective edge is it worth repairing?

Sorry for the camera phone quality.

Thanks.

Yes, it can be repaired.

Those with the knowledge will be along shortly to tell you how to do it. I'm afraid edge repair is not my forte.

Hang tight, the experts are not far away,

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

Yep, a two part marine epoxy. Open it up lightly with a knife and put the mixed epoxy as deep in as possible. Use a vise or vise grips and clap seperated area closed and let set for advised time on the epoxy instructions. Make sure to clean excess epoxy off while wet or its gonna be a pain to remove and be ugly. After a full day to cure it should be ready to rip groomers.

Get yourself a couple of thin blocks of wood to place between the clamps and the topsheet & base of the board. Once glued, You'll need to clamp it Tight and you don't want to further damage/dent the top or base. (..blocks will better distribute the pressure evenly over glued area as well.)

Thanks for the advice guys. It just needs to last for the season, and then we can look at getting her hooked up with another deck when the spring deals start rolling around.

I will research snowboard repair and marine epoxy - any specific brands that I should be looking at (that are widely available)?

Thanks.
