Does my snowboard needs a fix already?

Dear forum,

Two days ago I dropped my board on the sink. I'm worried that it will influence the snowboarding. What do you guys think? Should I get it fixed or shouldn't I worry about it?

Much thanks for your replies!

With love,

On the bubble from base material I would suggest you take an exacts blade to it in order to make it flush. Assuming water can't get into the core through the side you should be good to go. If there is some separation on the side drop some ptex in there to seAl it up and keep an eye on it.

Do not do this. This will make it worse.

It's hard to say without seeing it in person. A banged in edge can kill a board. It can crack the sidewall or cause base/topsheet delams.

Go to a reputable shop and get it looked at.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

This.

Next time be careful where you lean your board.

It doesnt look like it will develop into a problem. After a few runs monitor the area closely. If you see any separation it will need to be repaired to prevent core damage.

Utter garbage. Ptex does not seal properly, you need something like epoxy.

I lost my brand new Evil Twin at the top of the park fucking with my setup on its first day out at WP a couple years ago. Near the bottom it smashed into a rail and took a real nice ding in about the same spot, but it pushed out a way bigger bubble on the bottom.

A proper fix is like a full on cut-out which is like yea...your board is fucked. You can ride it with a cut-out and proper fix but .... I used some metal and a hammer and smashed the bubble like 2/3 of the way down so its not so bad. I have a asym 1" custom magnetraction on my back rail



Good thing I fucking hated how that board rode.
