Exclamation Broken Board!!!

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

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.
