Bringing it to a shop is a great idea. They will feel it, flex it and let you know with certainty what is going on. If it is a minor sidewall gap you can repair it yourself. If it is a major structural delam, those rarely get fixed in any meaningful way. You likely will end up with the same course of action for either of those. Possibly this is a defect as well. They can advise on that.

Snowbeard Yeah, I really appreciate it. In looking at it, it doesn't appear to be deep, however, I haven't ridden it this season. I was just waxing it when I noticed. Is it possible that clamping down will correct the edge alignment? I've never really done a repair of this nature to a snowboard. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Wiredsport My online diagnostics have hit their limit

Hard to tell on this one without seeing it. It does look and sound relatively minor. Have you ridden it since you noticed this. Does the flex feel odd? That might indicate a cracked core. If not, fill with epoxy and ride that puppy.

Snowbeard I don't see any dents inward on the edge or sidewall, basically all I see is the spot where there is the slight delam, and at that precise spot the edge is also higher than the base. At the delam spot it almost looks like water had seeped in and then frozen, causing expansion and a slight swelling of the edge in that 2 inch area of the board.

Wiredsport I see,

Sometimes pressure from being under point loaded weight (cargo bay) will dent a base like that in a small area and fracture the sidewall. Is the edge dented inwards at all (towards the opposite edge and sidewall)?

Snowbeard I've never flown with this board at all.

I see. Have you flown with the board recently?

Snowbeard Yes, that's correct, as well as also being a bit separated on the side, as indicated in the pictures.

So if I understand correctly the edge is high (further away from the topsheet than the rest of the edge and the base) and the base is low (indented towards the topsheet) in a quarter sized area. Is that it?
