Default epoxy for snowboard

Need some advice on repairs. A new rider decided to use me as a why to stop and took a few chunks out of my board. Stupid newbie should not have been on an advanced trail but either way.

What are some good epoxy products to use to seal the damage. How do I use them? Are they just two part normal epoxy?

I don't care about how it looks just don't want the core to get screwed up.

This is another reason I hate riding on weekends.

Ive used a golf club epoxy I bought at golfsmith. Its super strong and has a very high shear strength. Its also black, which worked out well for my purposes. I tried it once on a delammed area, and it didnt hold up. I think that was more an issue with the damage though, and not the epoxy.

Im no repair expert, but id imagine that anything with a high shear strength would be fine.

Marine grade 2 part epoxy. Mix more resin than hardener.

About 2 years ago I ran into a rail on my signal park rocker and the nose split so I just went to Home Depot and there was a HUGE selection of different epoxies. It worked great! havent had one issue yet.
I forgot exactly which one I used but just read the labels and see which one might be best

Epoxy is basically just a super strong glue. "Marine" really has very little to do with it.

What type do they use in the snow sport shops? I have no problem going to home depot and picking up some epoxy I just want to make sure it is right the first time. Names and types would be helpful.
thanks again!

marine epoxy is generally higher quality than cheap stuff for home repairs, you want something that takes at least 24 hrs to cure, anything less will be brittle. BA suggestion of extra resin slows the cure time and makes the expoxy less brittle.

my suggested brand is west systems gflex, it is a flexable epoxy to start with. they make a regular version that is thinner and good for getting inbetween layers and fixing delams. They also make a thickened version that is good for sealing exposes areas and filling in chunks. its sold at marine stores like West Marine, or find it online.

To get the epoxy in between the layers, use a syringe and needle to inject after mixing.
