smashed in edge on tail rome agent

alright, what's the best way to approach this. is there any benefit to pulling the edge out to where it should be or should i just epoxy the delam shut. the base is bluged out as you can see in the picture too.

view from bottom


view from top


next.. area where top sheet got stripped off.. should i epoxy a layer over that to "seal" it or leave as is.



thanks guysos.

I'd leave the edge as is and epoxy all over just to prevent water damage.

I had an old Burton Custom with the edge in like this but without any delam. I didn't do anything and just rode as is, no harm done whatsoever. The bump was on the base, but I don't remember feeling any difference

This advice is worth about what you pay for it

Definately put some epoxy on that wound. Otherwise water can enter which will eventually destroy the board through swelling and freezing.

If it were mine i would heat that area from the base side and bang it back into place then just epoxy the shit out of it.

Yeah I'd try bending the edge back if you can, vice, vise grips, maybe heat but that'll start screwing with the board too. Then cut away anything that's not really structural anymore, epoxy it up, and grind down the base to smooth it out then p-tex if there's any gap between the base and edge.

I always think it's worth the effort. It really costs nothing so is it worth your time to spend a few hours to get a lot more life out of the board?

Heating the base is completely fine as long as you know kinda what your doing. Basically this is it: Blow torch. Shoot it like a squirt gun. On__Off. Like half a second at a time till the edge it a bit hot to the touch, then hammer. Can you ruin it? yeah, if you just blast it for a length of time. It only takes like 2 maybe 3 spits of torching to get hot enough.

well it's on the tail of the board.. so its a non-contact point for the most part. that's why i was wondering if pulling out the edge is necessary

i'm out of town at the moment so when i get back i'll give it a try with some of the suggestions here.. vice grip sounds pretty good to get a hold of the edge.

maybe i'll try some bruteforceclampaction to get that bulge down once the edge is lined up, and maybe with some heat from a wax iron beforehand.

edit: thanks for the responses so far

I suppose you could always cut that section of edge out. I just think every part of the board is worth fixing the edge, seal the core, etc. Even if you're rarely on that part of the board.

A few good hits with a hammer will have that edge bent back into shape no worries. Heat is way overkill IMO.
Once you have it pretty straight epoxy it up and clamp it between 2 bits of hardwood until it cures. It might pay to rub some wax on the top sheet to prevent the epoxy from sticking to it.
