repair advice needed
Need some quick advice - back in my college riding days I rode a Academy Rhythm 156. Good board. Liked it a lot. After a few months on it I found that the top sheet in the tail started to come undone (see 'image' and 'image_1'). It looks like the top sheet started creasing, as if something had started to fold the top sheet like a piece of paper. No idea how this started to happen. I brought it back to the shop and they said it was unrideable and that I should get a new deck. I took their word for it they gave me a great deal on the same board, almost 70% off.
After riding the second board for almost a season and a half it was pretty thrashed, especially the tail (see 'image_2'). That damage I can account for, most likely damage from rails/rocks/lift lines, etc. It looks like just the top sheet it coming off.
Both of these boards have been lying next to a warm, dry furnace for the last...oh...5 or 6 years maybe? I pulled them out this weekend and was wondering if they could be saved? Or are they toast? My hope is to take a bunch of epoxy and sandpaper to them, wax, file edges, done.
