Cracked My Board....Help
ok so in the middle of the board there is a crack. Its right on the bottom of the board. Its about 8 inches long, in the direction of one side of the board to the other. (Heel to toe directed). Now how do I fix it so it is strong and rigid. Not just epoxy it so its sealed. Is there a sealer that will fill in the crack itself? Hopefully planning on still using it as a slider board. Help....anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?

maybe description was confusing, the crack id in the very middle of the board, on the bottom . It is a straight line from the heel side to the toe side. Slingshot reflex

I agree you are toast man. You can try some temp solutions but one hit and you are done. Sorry wish it wasn't so. Check on the warranty, maybe you can get a new one from them.

Just ride it as a slider board and when it disintegrates don't be too surprised. You can seal it but there is nothing that can bring back the strength once the glass is compromised.

yeah she is fried. One of two things happened either you crack the top sheet, the foam core, or both, guess that means one of three things happened. Either way it done. I would not suggest using it as a rail board if it snaps completely in half you could get wasted pretty bad. Hang it on the wall, its a war story.
