Angry Brokeded my board. Fixable *pics*

So this weekend was up in Tahoe. And I was riding in spring conditions cept with less runs open. Well anyway end of the day I notice my board is bollocksed. Think it was either rocks or hitting a box badly.

Went to the tech and he said I could either pay him to do it or do the following, clean it up and fill with JB weld then sand down to shape. May need filling every few rides but worth a shot. Guy was cool to impart a good idea.

You didn't notice a giant chunk missing from your snowboard?

AND

You don't have the slightest idea of how or where it happened ?

I work at a shop part time. Its no hassle. Just made the post to share a good idea for people who may do something similar and not have the cash flow to buy a new board.

JB weld is ok, but a shop tech should have something more specific. Plus he can get a new edge in there

Ya for sure. But with the time/labor putting the fix at what I paid for the board, I'll hop along for this season (depending on how it works) and upgrade.

This season is looking grim here. Hoping that the storms start rolling in or I wont see much need for it.

Even with JB Weld, I think the board's days are numbered. Won't that expose edge slowly pull itself away from the rest of the board? Guess you have a new rock board in the meantime.

last year i lost a little over an inch of edge under both my front and back foot on my toe edge. i didnt do anything to it and since the edge ripped clean out all i did was file down the inside corners where it ripped and i didnt notice a thing while riding it even when doing front nose slides right over where the edge was missing. the rest of the edge never even came a little off the board or anything. just take a razor blade to the base thats hanging off and try and break off the bent piece of edge and youll prob be good to go. i wouldnt bother trying to replace the edge, it'll just rip out after a couple days.
