So I damaged my board.

First time I've ever f****d up a snowboard before, I'm almost proud. I want to get back on the slopes as soon as possible though, so what can you guys tell me about this/what can I do to fix it? I've got about 50% of the orange piece that's missing.





Thanks a lot guys.

Ps. How bad of an idea would it be to ride it as is? It seems like I can see something made out of wood, I imagine it'd be a bad idea to get any more water in there.

You blew out your tip spacer (the orange piece). It would take making a new tip spacer, epoxing, and clamping it, but I'm not sure it would hold up very well.

Hopefully thats your nose. What I would do is cut out a plastic or wood piece with the same thickness and shape it as best as possible to the shape of the missing piece. Get some good plastic glue or super glue, glue it and clamp it for 24 hours.

Okay, thanks. What kind of glue, specifically would anybody reccomend for this? I was kinda thinking gorilla glue, but that's just because it's waterproof and I have no other ideas.

Also, you don't think it would hold up well, think I should just ride it as is? I've gotta be looking at some kind of consequences if I do that, what are they?

Marine epoxy. Good luck with that. It's worth a shot, but that thing is probably fucked.

I would recommend marine epoxy. The best way to clamp that would be to use 2 other pieces of snowboard tips so it would hold that same curve. Try and see if your local board shop might have a few chunks of broken snowboards to give you, or maybe a rental shop or something like that might have old broken boards laying around.

Thanks again guys, I'm thinking about getting some epoxy tomorrow. Out of curiosity, can anyone tell me what exactly I'm seeing in there, and why it's probably fucked? Also, if I kept riding this thing, how many days would you guess out on the hill/in the park until it's real dangerous for me to ride/ until it's into the ground?
