Chipped board

Got clipped by a lovely lady the other day, wondering if the board is fixable and if so would it be an expensive fix?

....since I know "jack" about this subject, I'm guessing on what it is exactly I'm seeing in that pic. So, if I'm wrong I'm sure someone can/will school me.

But from what I've read here in the forum on other "board damage" threads, it looks like the core's exposed? (shit, peeled back for christ sake!) And also maybe a "blown edge?"

If those two guesses are correct, I'd imagine the boards toast???

...if it was her fault, I hope you seriously chewed her ass! (...if she was Hawt, did you at least get laid?!!)

It did take a beating. You should do some repair work to it. Find some cold weather epoxy with good flexibility and epoxy it down. That should keep moisture out and fix the problem. It'll give your board character. I think it's salvageable. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, go to a shop and ask them what they think.

Same thing happened to me a few years ago. I used some marine epoxy and clamped it down with some small c-clamps for a few days. Worked like a charm.

I would be annoyed as hell...

It looks from the picture to be on an end, so not so important as a side edge, but still sucks non the less, i would at least try to seal it up with epoxy before you give it up, especially if it is an end, as this would very rarely if ever be something that hits the snow...

And if you can bond it down, at least you have a rock board for trashing that you can't really do anymore damage too...

Dude you are fine. I don't have a single deck that doesn't have the nose or tail blown up from a rail or something. Just seal that baby up if you are worried about water seeping to your core. 5$/5min DIY fix

Ok,... Looks like I was wrong about your board being toast! I've epoxied some minor peel backs of the laminate on the edges of my Arbor, but it's actually good to hear that damage as extensive as the type you suffered does not necessarily mean the end of a good riding board! (...knowing that, maybe I won't have to pummel the person who might do that to me n my deck!)

As I mentioned, I did it on a smaller scale, but you will want to get some blocks of 1x to put between your topsheet, your base and the clamps when you glue it. ( no sense in marring it up any more than it already has been!)

Good luck on the repair!

If it's @ the nose or tail, which it kinda looks like hard to tell?

You probably didn't get to the core Still sucks ass though, I know.

Take it too a shop, it might be ugly as shit, but I don't think you'll even notice.


Hey Chomps, unless she's a beaver bumper I don't think she got laid

IDK, I think I'll stand by my original statement!

Based on the OP's original opening line, you can clearly understand my confusion! Either way, hope we aren't chasing away another potential long term female member!!!

(...To the OP, no offense meant! . We're a creepy, perverted lot here in this sausage fest of a forum, but give us a chance!)
