Ideas on how to fix this please?
 
Hey everyone,

Would really appreciate some advice on how to go about fixing the edge on my board - there's a small chunk of the edge gone from the tail, have no idea how it happened, maybe it's from jumping but I'm not sure.
The board is a Custom X. Anyone had a similar thing happen and knows how to go about fixing it?
Was thinking about just dripping p-tex in there to at least seal it and protect the core...

thanks in advance for any help! Photos below....

Edge is not "gone". It's only the joint where the edges meet. Should have been sealed from the factory.

You could use ptex or epoxy to fill the gap. I would use epoxy.

thanks - I'll go with the epoxy, hopefully it'll stay in place.

No reason no to. Just make sure the area is clean before applying.

I would imagine that aside from appearance, that wont have any affect on the boards performance. You did say it was on the tail right?

Yep, it's on the tail. As Simon pointed out, it appears to have been the point where the edge ends met. Probably happened landing tail heavy a few times too many.
I'm not at all worried about the appearance of it, plus it's tiny anyway, but I'm just worried about the board delaminating. Only bought it in december..
It's gonna take plenty more punishment before the season is out :laugh:
