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!
