Exclamation Steel edge + base repair at tip

Yep you can say it, I fucked up!! ###""@@

K so I ran into a rock doing some off-piste.

I can fix topsheet chips no problem with a clamp and some marine-grade epoxy and make it look super clean and all. But this one's kicking it up a notch

Worth a try? Or should I take it to a shop?

Tips on fixing it? Thx.

Is this the nose or the tail of the board?

Same thing happened to my friends board, but somehow it happened to his tail and he just broke off the metal. Since he doesn't ride switch, he still rides the board with no problems at all.

Well, being the DIYer I am I'd grab some JB weld and clean the hell out of the inside of it and clamp it back together.

I must ask, did you have an epic front flip when you hit the rock? Or did you just fall over?

i'd cut the metal edge any where it is bent, as it wont bend back nicely. Then start trimming away the lose base material and core until the damage is exposed. Fill with epoxy, clamp with some vice grips, let it cure completely. Sand it down. Go ride.

Looks like the edge blew right where it seems together? I don't have experience with fixing that, but I don't see why you couldn't work your way from the good side to the bad side and slowly form it back together....

And don't use JB weld, use a waterproof epoxy when "glueing" it all back together.

I have a good feeling with some time, you can get that edge back to where it needs to be and actually fix this problem

What if I just took some pliers to bend the metal back to shape? Maybe cut away like 1 or 2 mm so it'll fit right?

And ET - no, there was no epic flip lol, I only found out about it at the end of my day - lame...

You should be able to repair it so that it's serviceable. It may not look pretty.

JB Weld works pretty good actually, but in this case you may want an epoxy that is more specific for winter gear. It is going to need to be able to handle cold temps and be flexible. I'd try either the Hysol epoxy or the Urethane glue from Tognar.

You start messing with it with pliers and you're going to bend it all up... Right now it has a pretty uniform bend and just needs pressed down and glued basically

I would try to work that edge back in and see if it will hold together, but if it just won't conform back, you may have to sacrifice it and cut it out. As for the repair I would probably go with marine epoxy myself. The stuff I used was one hell of an adhesive! Good luck!
