Damage on Trice C2BTX

Ran over some hidden rocks and also head on collision with a skier. The edge and base took quite a beating (especially the nose of the non metal edge of the board where it cut quite deep that i see wood). Do I need to get these fix before my next trip? below are pics. thx

I'm guessing you're newer to the sport. #2 is normal and nothing to worry about. Fix it eventually with a base grind, along with all the other scratches and gouges you'll accumulate on the base. #3 is also normal and easily fixed with a regular tuning of the edges. #1 is no big deal as long as you fix it now. Just get some epoxy from home depot and it's an easy fix.

Thanks! Wasn't so worry about the other but #1 is the first time I manage to do that to a board ( don't think that could have happen if the whole edge is metal wrap)

Now you're just regurgitating what you've read online, which has nothing to do with the damage YOU caused. Even with a full metal edge, your damage is on the topsheet, not the bottom where edges are. Use more common sense.

mmm.... that pic is actually the base of the board's nose where the cut is. The more I ride, the bigger the damage becomes since snow is pushing open the damage. plus you don't have to read what's online to know which side is the topsheet and the base.

THe board is quite good. it's a fast board compare to my 08 uninc 158cm. wrote a small review in the review section of this forum. just that the lack of metal edge on the nose and tail makes me extra careful in placing my board in places where cement is exposed on the resort. (so that i don't bust the sidewall wide open leaving the wood core exposed)
