Snowboard nose tip repair?
 
So standing at the end of the lift line and someone crashes into me ended up damaging the tip of the board. Looks like it only damaged the top, I'm just worried will there be other damage like rotting or whatever.

I'm just planning to leave it out in the sun to dry the put some epoxy in the area and clamp it down? Or does it actually need real repair? Pics taken on cellphone hopefully clear enough

Dry it, then apply marine epoxy to seal it. You can sand the epoxy smooth if you want, but it's not necessary.

Dam... did they offer to at least pay for repairs? I would have said its cool if you pay for repairs, if not I would have have stabbed there deck with an icepick.

Ignore this, there's more damage than just top sheet; you need to seal it to prevent water penetration.

Not really if it didn't break down to expose wood. Only thing you'd be sealing is the the ends of the fiberglass but fiberglass isn't really porous enough for you to need to worry about that.

My brother had chipped his board and i didn't notice until i was helping him pack up his gear one day. I told him he should patch it but he told me that he had been riding on it like that for a year and there were no problems. He's chipped it a couple more times and the board's been fine so i say don't worry about your's unless you really just want to do something.

Alright my b, the chips on his board aren't that big and don't go much past the top sheet but i still don't think you need to worry.
