try squashing it back flat with a c-clamp and pour some epoxy oven the end to re seal it. it will fix it til next season at least.

and what do you mean somehow? you didn't notice slamming it into a Rail/tree/skier/rock?

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

well, i noticed the damage after it fell off a rack at my hotel. the board was standing upright and then suddenly fell on the ground. initially i thought that was the cause but i'm not too sure. i don't think the impact from that would have enough force to dent the nose and produce a bubble. would clamping it really work though? don't i need to do something about the edge since it's bent? this one shop i went to said they could do it but they would have to make a hole in my board. they would refill with p-tex i think? there would just be a black spot where the hole was. seemed a bit drastic so i refused

seems like what they said would work to me, nothing is going to make it back perfect. it is best to leave the edge intact so that it doesnt pull out at the splits. you will have to seal it someway to keep moisture from damaging the wood core. You could just glob some epoxy in it and ride, shouldn't affect you to much if its right on the end of the tail.

is that an arbor draft?

thanks for the input guys. i decided to let the shop fix it since i don't have any tools at the moment. they did a pretty good job if i must say. and yes riley212, it's an arbor draft. just got it a month ago so it sucked when i saw the dent lol

That looks like an excellent job.

How much did they charge?
