Default Board Repair

Last year during summer I managed to pick up a forum youngblood (2008?) snowboard from a garage sale for $20 dollars. I talked to the people running the sale and they said it was their sons who was now in college and doesn't use it anymore so of course I felt like it was a pretty good deal and bought it. Since it was summer and I had no use for it I tossed it in the closet. So now since most of the mountains around me are starting to open up I brought it out, but upon further inspection noticed it had something pretty majorly wrong with it. I have attached two pictures of the board showing the problem area. Basically it appears that the board split slightly right by the tip so I am assuming that the kid ran into a rock and busted up his board. I am just wondering if there is anyway to fix this? I'm sure I'll have to take it into the shop to get it fixed, just trying to see if there is even anything they can do about this. Since my rome pusher is still in excellent condition this isn't an emergency but I was just curious to see what you guys know.

If you need a better angle or more light or whatever let me know and I can snap some more pictures

So this is a common repair the snowboard shop can fix? Do you know about how much this usually costs?

no clue sorry, mine wasn't that bad I just did it my self. Nosed into a feature and had a small dimple. I also peeled back some of my sintered base on a feature a few weeks ago.
I just epoxyed them, still holding. Make a few phone calls that should get you a ball park price.

Will putting the board in the clamps fix the big bump on the base?
