Default Still rideable?

Had this board in the attic for a couple years, a small piece of the left metal edge chipped off on one of my trips. Was thinking about giving it to a friend to ride. Would it be fine to ride or is that an important contact point? He is still a beginner, don't want to ruin his trip by giving him a messed up board.

It looks like a either a bad p-tex repair or just some wax build up. But even if it was the board itself... I wouldn't be concerned about it. Not a whole lot of action going on at the tips of the board. If your friend is a beginner, I'm sure he will just appreciate saving the money.

From the pictures that doesn't even look like a chip in the edging, just looks like someone did a crappy p-tex job and slopped some over the edge. Either way, I'd say it's perfectly fine to ride.

It doesn't look like it in the picture, but there is a small piece of metal missing. The only thing I am worried about is that it will keep peeling off when he is riding.

That section of the board is safe from such a small bit of edge missing. Should be fine to ride all season. It appears to be far up enough past the contact point not to worry about it catching. Of course if he is a buttering, nose rolling fool then chances increases of damage. But like the other posters stated shouldn't be a problem.

Lib Tech? Was it the tapered tip of the edge (where it ends) that chipped off? I can't imagine how that is even possible... in any case, I wouldn't think it would matter at all in that location.

Looks like the 08 (?) TRS. I have the same board except with MTX. From the coloring of this board it is either without MTX or a very rare 08 TRS w/ BTX.

I wouldn't worry about any missing edge on the tip or tail.

It's the BTX. I don't think it's rare though, I was at beaver creek that season and I saw hundreds of them there. It seemed like it was the most popular board that year.

I wish the TRS still looked like that, it looked so much better then than it does now.

Ya this is the 2nd year they had BTX. I was getting it mixed up with the 07/08 trs.
