Broken Board!!!
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,
Today i was with my friend hitting a rail in my back yard. He asked to ride my board and after thinking about it i said said yes. He hit the corner of the rail and put a gouge in it. You can see the wood. I don't think it went into the wood though. I got my board a week ago. What should i do. Have my friend pay to get it repaired? See if there is any warranty on it? Get a new board?
Please Help!!!!

There's no warranty for operator error. I'd see if you can get it base welded, it might hold for a while it might not. Your friend should pay for both the repair and the board if the repair fails.

PS: that's not a gouge, that's a hole through the base and your core is more than likely exposed

make sure its dry, fill it with ptex, keep an eye on it.

Thank you for the info and he said he would pay for the repair. Do you think i would be able to p tex it or does it need to be professionally done?

you could only weld it if you have a ptex gun, which you don't.

you can get a candle and drip er in there and it might hold, but it being on the edge and seeing as he has offered to pay for it i'd take it to a shop to get welded. shouldn't cost much anyhow.

You can ptex it like Shred said. I'd go for a professional base weld since it's brand new. Either way make sure you let it dry and keep it dry before attempting a repair.

you guys think ptex can repair that? I would have thought it would need to be patched.

That board needs a base weld. If I was your buddy, I'd buy you a new board. It's the right thing to do IMO. He can take that one, get a base weld and keep it.

The thing is i am 15 and so is he. It is kind of hard to just say hey instead of paying for a repair can you just buy me a new board. You know what i mean?
