Hey, the OP's avatar looks like a P-Tex job gone wrong!

The job is easy... but drink a few beers before you start.
Nothing wrong with a little horseplay and I love messing around with set ups. I clean my bearings and change bushing combos when it rains over the summer too

Are we talking about garage activities or bedroom activities here?

Didn't feel like starting a new thread for this - but while on the topic of damaged boards, I hit a tree today and was wondering if this needed immediate attention? Question may be stupid but I've never damaged my board in this way...

There is a decent sized gap on each end, like a sandwich falling apart (hard to see with all the mud and bark stuffed in there), and you can completely pull back (lift up?) the top sheet with your finger




Probably nothing to worry about eh?

I dunno man If you can completely pull back the top layer I'd be afraid I could expose my core to moisture.

^ I'm no expert but it seems as if delamination like that can allow water to enter between the layers, which could cause problems maybe?

I make my misses lie under the board when I do it. Different strokes for different folks, lol.

Toecutter, what is your avatar a picture of?

I would epoxy that up, WasatchMan. You can fix it for about $10-15. A two part epoxy from home depot or lowes, a couple of small c-clamps (you can find them for like $2-3) and a couple pieces of thin scrap wood or metal.

Let the board sit in a dry, room temperature environment (in your house, preferably). If you can dry it at a LOW temperature with a heatgun or hairdryer after letting it sit for at least 24 hours, that's even better.

Mix the two part up really well and us a popsicle stick or something similar to apply it between the topsheet and the core. Clamp it down, using the pieces of scrap wood or metal to act as pressure distribution plates. Let it cure for at least 24 hours. Also, before you let it set, if any epoxy squeezes out, wipe it up, you'll be saving yourself work later.

Come back 24-48 hours later and sand/file down all excess that squeezed out. You're done.
