video of the worst board damage

the worst I've ever seen, and the shop I took it to to have fixed. Looks like I settled down on a piece of rebar or something. I was off trail enjoying the leftover powder from the only storm we've had.

at 54 seconds into the video it looks like you scrapped the rock. You can clearly hear the scrape. Not sure if that's what caused it but it's a good suspect.

It is right before he fell. The rock ripped his board which stopped his forward momentum and caused him to fall forward headfirst. Early season conditions are fun times! The OP also ran over about 10 different rocks up to that point but whatever only the last one that threw him did the real damage.

exactly! lol I thought it was pretty obvious that I didn't intentionally fly like superman at the end. I left the new board at home for a good reason, and made myself a rock board

That's a pretty legit core shot, but a fairly straight forward repair. Far from what I'd consider severe damage. I thought we were gonna be looking at a mangled board with an obviously busted core or something.
