Default Cost To Repair This Snowboard

My friend has a Forum LRG 156 snowboard that he said he'd sell to me for around 150. He said the edge is peeling off the base and so is the topsheet. How much would it cost to get this board repaired at a board shop?

And does anyone know if this is a good snowboard? He said it was pretty good, but I'm a beginner snowboarder so I don't really know whats good and whats bad.

You should tell your friend that he has to pay for the fix.

the LRG is an awesome snowboard. its based on forums Grudge model, but it was designed by LRG. but thats a pretty intense fix, it requires delaminateing the base, setting screws epoxying new sections of base, your probably looking at a 100 fix or more

Well I could deal with 100, seeing as a new one would still cost more. And if the board is as good as you say it is then its worth it right? Would the board be good as new after the repairs?

You can buy that board brand new for $300 at dogfunk or $300 on ebay and if you use the live.com cashback you can get it off of ebay for $210 all said and done(depending on shipping).

Sounds like you might be better off buying a new board. Used boards can have damage you might not spot right away. I prefer not to take any chances. If your friend takes it to a shop and gets it repaired, then you might consider it, if the price is right. Personally, I'd go with another board, but that is without seeing pics.
