Default Deep Dent in board

Hey I'm not sure where to post this so I'm sorry if this is not the place... So anyway I took my board to a shop to get some screws on my high backs and foot beds replaced because I broke them and the guy working on my board used a screw that is too long for the footbed and it put a big deep hole in my board about halfway through the entire board. What should I do? Im sure the core must be damaged permanently now. I'm really pissed

Is it poking through the base? Pictures?!?

The shop should be compensating, but if you decide to fix yourself it's likely not a big deal. If the core is exposed from the top, epoxy it. If it's exposed from the bottom, ptex it. Done.

The shop needs to reimburse you for the damage unless they made you sign a waiver that excludes them from any damage caused during repairs/maintenance.

Well I took it to the shop and they were cool about it and fixed it. Its not so bad, its pretty deep and ugly but should not effect the way I ride and if I notice any problems with it they said to bring it back in and we will talk. It was just a simple mistake and its a great shop I was not bringing it to some trashy place. I was pretty freaked out when I saw it though

Fuck that. If they drilled a hole in your board ANYWHERE that wasnt there to begin with, they need to hook you up with a new board.

If they addressed the mistake I wouldn't be a dick, but if you're looking for some new outer wear or boots I'd expect a hefty discount =)

Take advantage buddy!
