Question Help: How To Fix Damaged Board?

Second time I took my board out and a f^#ki*ng skier ran into me and caused the tail end of my board to split as the pictures show.

1) Board is new...would it be covered under (RIDEs) warranty?
2) If not, can I fix it (I am technically/mechanically inclined)...how?
3) Would it be better to take the board into a pro shop?
4) How much would it cost (approximately)...myself vs proshop?

Any insights appreciated. Thanks.

I doubt ride will cover it as it is not a manufactures defect. You can always try to take it in to the shop and find out tho.
That looks like it would be pretty easy to fix your self, just some good epoxy, and clamps are all you would need. However a shop will probably do a better job, and it shouldent be more than $30 or $40. If your buying glue and clamps it will be pretty close to that price anyway.

1. Clean crud out best you can by any means available to you, without making it worse of course.
2. Marine grade 2 part epoxy (8$ home depot, k-mart wtv) - will last you like 50+ repairs.
3. Apply epoxy and clamp down, have beer, wait 2-3 days.
4. File down excess with metal file and/or 180 grit sandpaper.
5. GO RIDE

Now, if it were my board I'd do it myself. But if you're still in love with the looks of your new board, you can take it to a shop. They'll pretty much do the same thing but possibly make it a little cleaner looking due to practice and experience.

I noticed you also have some crud/rust on the metal edge of your board. Use this - http://blog.makezine.com/upload/2009...otch-Brite.jpg - and it'll come right off like fckin magic!!

Hope this helps!!
