Need a New board due to accident.

Hey guys

Totaled my Burton Superhero 2013 after forgetting to pop up onto a pipe. Thought the jump itself would be good enough to launch me up onto the pipe but it wasn't. i should have popped up but I didn't and the result was the nose of my board slamming into the pipe and me almost breaking my pelvis. (several pulled muscles and lots of pain). So I am pretty sure i will need a new board. There is like a 3x1 inch section of the top sheet which has almost come off and the wood underneath is exposed. Then there is a huge dent on the edge which has created a bump on the base.

Maybe it can be fixed I dunno but I would rather just get a new board because I HATE MENDED OR PATCHED UP GEAR.

So I am looking for your recommendations on a good solid park board for 400 or less. Any brand. lots of suggestions please. thanks.

Current Setup
Burton Super Hero 2013 151cm, Union Force Bindings 2013, Burton Hail Boots.

yea, pics would help...it sounds like a simple top sheet delam and a dented edge...which im assuming is on the nose since thats where the impact was.

a dent in the nose edge shouldnt effect its performance and a delam is an easy $10 fix and youll never know it was there....

With that kind of damage I doubt the core is still intact. New board it is.

Flow Era, Signal Park, Salomon Sabotage, YES Jackpot, Nitro Swindle, or a Forum Scallywag.

Snowboarding Is...

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

looks like this will be your new practice board to master some new tricks since it's F'd up.
