Default This is what happened to my board this weekend

The title speaks for itself.
I probably should of put this one in Captain T's vent thread but I felt like starting my own

So a couple of my friends & I took a day trip up the thruway this weekend, Windham to be specific.
We get there, take our boards out of the car..lean our boards against my buddy's car (1st mistake, my mistake). Literally a minute before we were about to head to the lifts, my board slides off the side of the car & smashes into the pavement.



It's about an inch long..the bubble goes in about 3/4 of an inch on my front heelside. And the sidewall has a little separation. Way to start the day huh. I was pissed, it's only been the second season with this deck. Well I figured shit already happened..I'm here to ride & wasn't gonna let this ruin my day.

So halfway through the day we decide to break by the fire pit. I put my board on my lap & my friend says to me "is this what happened when your board fell?" I look at her like what..she points to this.




I was like WTF where'd this come from..actually I was like where'd my top sheet go?
It's about 1 inch long & 1/8 of an inch in. Right in between the bindings on my toeside. I don't remember hitting anything or anyone running into me. Now I'm just super pissed. But again, I was like I still got half a day to ride.

At the end of the day I unstrap & look at my board to see this




WTF! The gouge runs across the board. 1 inch long (is there some sort of recurring theme here lol) the deep part of the gouge is only 1/4 inch & it's about 1mm deep.

I guess I posted this to rant but also to ask for some advice. I already Googled what needs to be done.
First what i was gonna do was just bang out the bubble & straighten out the edge & then epoxy the sidewall. But Tognar.com says i should cut the bent edge out, cut the damaged based out. Size a new edge, loctite & screw it in. Dremmel cut the screw head out & then fill the base. Any suggestions on this one?

The topsheet i was gonna put some 2 part marine grade epoxy on, let it cure for a few days & then file it down.

The gouge i was gonna go get a repair iron & use some ptex or techno stix & fill it. I'm not sure if this is even necessary.

That's all folks!

none of it is serious....just lightly pound out the dent/bubble and tap it in to line with the rest of the edge and epoxy to seal it, the top sheet is nothing, epoxy if you want, the base is nothing...ptex it...probably just rode over a little rock.








Wait, send it to me....since it is trashed...I need another rock board.

Dont feel bad. Every board I have looks worse than that. They day you learn to love the glades you also learn that a snowboard still works with any number of battle scars.

Hopefully you learned your lesson not to lean your board against a car... Always put it on the ground, and where a car isn't gonna run it over.

And ya those things are pretty fixable..

LOL i cant believe someone is complaining about this. None of those are even serious. Maybe the edge that is bent is a little problem but it looks like it is on the curve of the nose where it wont make a difference.

The little ding in the base and on the side is normal for pretty much any board. It's called wear & tear. The bubbled part sucks, but can be repaired. I'd leave that to a professional, though.

op, you can easily avoid dings like these by wrapping your snowboard in bubble-wrap, stowing it safely under your bed and never going snowboarding...
