Base replacement

Hey all! I love fiddlin with stuff and I picked up a snowboard with a totally shot base. How would I go about replacing it? Would burton have replacement bases or would I just have to get a general sheet and cut it down? If you are gonna tell me it cant be done or to get a new board I would ask you kindly not to post here, but if anyone here has ever replaced a base or has any advice I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks guys!
Alex

You don't replace a base you get it base ground

If the base is beyond fix by a base grind then the board is trashed

Hope you didn't pay much for it buddy.... If you post some pictures some of us may have some suggestions for what to do

Bases are not replaceable, they are repairable to a certain extent but you cannot replace a base. As Milo said, post a picture of the base and how bad it really is an we can probably tell you if it is repairable or not.

No one here has replaced a base so don't get upset about the replies.

If noone here has done this before then I can understand that, but if It got put together that means it can be taken apart, and if it can be taken apart most of the time it can be reassembled. I got it for free, the base has bad wavy bubbling and is coming off. Ill get a picture when I get a chance.

Worked in repair shops for 14 years you won't be able to fix it. You don't have the tools available to you or the knowledge. But I hear you can use lighter fluid to fix this shit go talk to Sierra Snowboards.

It's delamming, the board is trashed..... Trust us and don't bother. You will just tinker with it and tinker with it and it will never be right.

And a snowboard doesn't just get "put together" like you would put a car together or something like that. The process involves heat, pressure, glues, bla bla bla.

Don't mean to sound like a dick but take the advice of people who've walked before you and go get yourself a board that doesn't have issues.
