I did something similar to mine... Got some epoxy, a clamp, and sand paper. It doesn't look pretty, but moisture isn't getting into the core of the board, and the edge is reasonably good, here's a pic.

What else are you gonna do? Put some strong epoxy in there and ride it. Clamp it with some vise-grips and some strips of hard wood if you need to get the layers to lay flatter. Put vaseline on the strips so the epoxy doesn't stick to them. I've got to do a little work on the tail of my son's new board. This is what I plan on doing.

^ I did exactly this two years ago when I came out from lunch to find the tail of my board magically split. It worked wonders until I sold it at the end of the season.

Yeah the pics don't look nearly as bad as the description. It can't hurt to try fixing it...
