Default is it repairable?

Daughter hit a rail wrong last night and damaged her board on the nose. About 4 inches of the edge came out of the board and is bent up at a 90 from the board. It looks like the core is smashed/compressed too. Think that's something that can be fixed or is the board toast? At least it's on the nose and not near the effective edges. Leave for Colorado in 3 weeks.

i had something similar but it wasnt anywhere near 4 inches. you should take it to a repair shop and have them check it out.

sport chalet does a nice job. i took it there because my friend works there and it was free.

Take it to a snowboard and ski shop, they should be able to fix it.

keep your board as dry as possible in case the core is exposed. something similar happened to an old ride board of mine, the nose split open to about 2 inches and the top was bent 90 degrees. i believe what the board shops do is epoxy it shut. i read a few DYIs on this and did it myself...made sure the board was entirely dry (no moisture in case of core exposure). then i bought an epoxy syringe from home depot (i think it was for boats) and filled up the area and clamped it back shut with a vice and let it dry for about a week. you can file off/sand it down after it dried if you put way too much epoxy that it was spilling out when you clamped it. putting more is better than less, you need to close the area completely so moisture doesnt get in. the reason i did this was because i remember the board shop was going to charge me a grip for it.

that board still rode good for a few more seasons
