Sounds like a good fix. Look at Demoing a board at Revy, like renting, but it is new stuff.
As for a new board as you are already on Burton gear, get a Sherlock. I
MO, one of the best all around resort boards, ever.

|Joe Coffee||Yes I know I will be gettin a new board never the less. It should be fine though because I will be in powder in revelstoke so it should not see to much stress.|

Don't expect that to be a permanent fix after a core shot.
I'd get a new board (I also ride the Westmark, it's amazing) and then use that "repaired" one for practicing your jibs and pops with one of these in your back garden!

|Joe Coffee||Ok kids so heres the scoop. I de lammed it and filled all the cracks and dents with epoxy. I let it dry thoroughly and then filed the excess stuff down to make it look cosmetically pleasing. I then put a bit more epoxy over it again and let it dry and then filed it down. Did a few presses on it and it seems fine which amazes me.|

|Joe Coffee||yes all the damaeg is in the nose. The base is fine.|

Can't tell from the photos, but is all of the damage in the nose? Past your effective edge?
No experienced with fucked up boards but if it's in the nose, I'd ride it still until it fell apart.

|Joe Coffee||Ok so I already did this. But I used a 50/50 mixture of the resin and hardener. This will be a powder only board now so it will not see any hard surfaces. It should still be good? Plus my shop said they could nothing about it. (fail) But the base is not damaged at all. So will this board still peform like it should?|

It will be a temp fix but you should make it through your trip.
Get some 2 part epoxy. When you mix it use more something like 4:1 resin:hardener. That will ensure the glue flexes instead of cracking. It will take longer to cure, but will last longer.
Get it all up in there, and clamp it with something flat between the clamp and board, leave for 24 hours. Dont worry about the base bubble if it's in the tip of the nose. If you can see the core anywhere from it just make sure to get some epoxy in there.
If you really want to fix the bubble you might be able to. Do this before fixing the delam. Get a heat gun or a blow dryer and blast away. When everything is fairly hot use a screw driver and hammer the edge back into place. If there is space between the base and core drop some epoxy in there before you bang the base down. Then use like a plastic mallet to bang the base back down. Let cool all the way before you move onto the delam.
Oooooooooor take to a shop. Expect to pay $50-$100.

|Joe Coffee||Ok can this be repaired at all? Because I am in a bind here. Going to Revelstoke BC here next week and will not have the cash for a new board by then. And I dont want to rent. Would a de lam say on the nose there do and then what about the spider web cracking? How should I go about fixin that?|
