Default 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.

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.
