Base repairs

So, I got rocked pretty hard on a c box with a loose bolt and was thinking of the getting a base repair done on the board. It's only a minor 2 inch gouge on the nose perpendicular to the edge but I have a couple days before I can ride again so I figured I'd fix it or get it fixed.

Looking for a harder fix then p-tex candles have given me in the past since it's right on the contact point. Might bring it to the shop if I can find one with a decent repair shop if they can do harder materials then candles. Anyway, expert advice is always welcome.

Yeah, that's fuckin nothing! Scrape the ptex sticking up with an exacto blade and fill it with wax. My base is half destroyed and I'm just thinking of getting a base weld and grind now... I don't know if a shop would even bother welding that, they'd probably just candle it too.

Bah! Although I've half destroyed it going over rocks (I've determined that rocks are a normal thing at Lake Louise, it's not just an early season issue), I still have never had a base grind so there's tons of material left to work with.

I'll just get a shop to fix up the edges, fill the deepest gouges, and then grind the whole base. Should be good for another few years of rock usage!
