Default New board is damaged! [PICS]

Gone to big white last weekend, had an awesome time..

going there this weekend up for an awesome time...

HOWEVER my brand new board that's only had 5 days of riding was hit by this stoner dude bombing down the mountain while i was clearly stopped on the side where the lift entry is.

It's a Lib tech TRS 2010 and paid $550 usd

Is this fucked or can it be fixed? I'm hoping to take it out this weekend but i'm worried that the water will fuck up the core... is this gone beyond repair or what? The guy at repair shop says it's 2 day turnaround and that's not enough time, i need to head out tomorrow. He said to put some duct tape?

What do you guys think?

Damn, that guy effed it up pretty good. You should have made him pay for the damages.

Looks like parts of your board actually cracked including the edges. Not a real good thing, but not the end of the world since it is on nose only. Epoxy and clamp is my suggestion. Gotta ask others how to do it though, I have never done it before.

So, where's the pics of the guy after you punched him in the fawking face???

Considering it's a new board and you've got $550 invested already, I'd take it to a good local shop and tell them to do the best they can.

Riding it isn't your problem. Unless you do a lot of nose presses or switch tail presses, it won't really affect you. The problem lies in the fact that you might damage the board further from impacts. If it wasn't cracked, then it wouldn't be such a big deal. You definitely have cracks on that board which is bad news. So, the choice is yours. Risk or no risk, but definitely still rideable.

I second gorge's opinion. Take it to a local shop or even the resort shop and see what they can do.

This seems to happen a lot with mervin boards that is why I am really hesitant to buy another one even though they have some fun boards.
