Default Laminate help

Hey guys,
So today was the first session of the season to test out my new NS EVO(which was amazing). Rode great, very damp, seemed very versatile. Didn't
get to try it in the park yet, because of the lack of snow. When I got done I
notice a tear in the top laminate of the board(maybe a rock or something hit
it?). Anyways, Curious on if I can just apoxy it?



Any help is appreciated!

Sorry to see that man. The first one hurts! If it is just the topsheet it was likely another boarder or a skier in the lift line. Edges and top sheets do not get along. You can trip the old material if it is really thrashed or clamp it back down. Slow epoxy to fix. Perfformance and longevity will not be affected at all. If it is more than just topsheet let us know.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but I had a bit of similar damage on the tip of the tail of my board occur this weekend. Now I'm not here cryin' about "Oh No, my pretty, pretty board"! I already had a bit of damage in this spot prior, but after a really good switch wipeout, it peeled back about a 1/4 inch & 1.5-2 inches across.

I would like to know if I can (...or should) glue it down so it won't get peeled back any further next time! (...cuz I'm certain there will be a "next time"!)

I'd like to know if there is some specific kind of epoxy I should use, or is any slow set stuff OK? I'm planning to samich the glued spot between two small blocks of wood & clamp it tight. Want to be sure I don't use something that might damage the top sheet.

Yeah, you definately should glue it (and/or trim it). Once these peels start they tend to grab anything and a minor whack can turn into a 4 inch topsheet peel. All hardware stores will have decent two part slow cure epoxy. There are a number of brands with syringes that work great. If you want to get fancy you can get epoxy pigment. For areas of black, etc, this can make for some hard to detect repairs.

Do you think I should report the damages to NS so if anything else goes wrong with the board it would still be warrantied in the future?

Why would that make any difference?

Just don't wanna void the warranty for using any kind of epoxies or anything. Better to be safe than sorry lol.

NS wont care what you use, its a trivial matter really. If you dont want to use epoxy just drip some hot wax into the void after you trim it back

NS is a great company. They can easily tell the difference between warranty damage and normal wear and tear (which this is). If your board were to have an unrelated problem that was a manufacturer defect, NS would happily take care of you as would the retailer who sold you your gear. Solid snowboard companies want you to be stoked with your gear.

Thanks!
