put a nice gouge in a 3hr old snowboard:thumbdown: its next to the edge and to the core. i think it needs a base weld , not just slap some ptex on it. anyone know a good shop near boston?

I would go down the street and talk to the guys at Summit Ski and Snowboard. Really honest and knowledgeable guys... I don't trust my skis to anyone else.

brought my board to summit, mike fixed it in 5 minutes!

A true core shot has to be cut out and replaced with a new piece that is epoxied in. If the shop just filled it in with melted in P-tex it's gonna pop right out.

Mike is excellent. Brought something in to him earlier this season that I didn't want my regular guy working on in case it didn't work out! He explained my options, recommended the cheaper and less "invasive" option and all worked out very well. nice guy and obviously very knowledgeable and experienced.
