In another season or two, you will likely be riding something different anyway and this board will either be a back up or sitting in the rack at Play It Again Sports.

So true! We go through boards round here like they're a revolving door.

This was after a few hours on a freshly waxed base and how much worse can it get??! It looks like its pulling away from edge in some spots.
Anything like that on your DBX Linville?
A freshly waxed base won't do shit if you smoke an unmarked rock/tree, which looks what you did.

Stop stressing.

Now the boy uses this as a practice board and wall art. $400 out the window in 2.4 seconds....

He's doing it right! Hahaha. Gear ain't cheap but it's for damn sure meant to be beat on.

linvillegorge My DBX has taken some serious hits and has the typical battle scars to match, but no core shots yet. If it's not a core shot, don't worry about it. Just wax and ride.

linvillegorge The base looks absolutely prestine aside from a couple of millimeters next to the edges. The board is fine. If you're sweating this "damage" you should probably quit riding your board because it's only gonna get worse.

jellyjam My first instinct when I saw this was thr same thing.
"oh fuck I didn't think I hit anything!" But it surprised me to see that damage at that distance the whole length of the edge. Both toe and heel side but a little more on the toe (front foot especially severe) It looks like someone got at the few mms near the dge with a cheese grater!
NO DAMAGE TO BASE!

And yeah. The crew that did the renno on our garage were slackers but its my office so i'll deal!

BurtonAvenger Well you see your problem here is this thing we call snowboarding. It's the act of riding a snowboard down a snow covered mountain that has unmarked obstacles on it. Sometimes these obstacles cause damage to the snowboard.

Personally I would be more worried about that grouting on the tile. That doesn't look too healthy.

Take a straight razor and just slide it across the base cutting off the dangler. Wax, snowboard, repeat as necessary.
