  #1  Shallow cut on board, need repaired?  Posted 11/04/2017 @ 10:51
Hi all,

I recently bought a morrow mountain board and have taken it to an indoor slope (real snow) for a few runs.

This weekend after I finished, I noticed a cut down the base (no idea what has done it, very annoyed), it's roughly a millimetre deep at its deepest and just a small scratch at other points, it runs roughly half the board from the tail to the centre and down the middle of the board.

At this point I only see cosmetic wear but I like to keep my gear in good shape so it lasts, is this something that I should get repaired incase it becomes a problem later? Don't want my board not even lasting before the season has started

Always annoying when your new board gets cut-up. However, the damage you describe is unlikely to be anything other than cosmetic.

I suspect the base is 'extruded' which is quite soft and easily marked or gouged. On the plus side, extruded bases are easy to repair so if you really feel like spending the money take it to a good shop to have the cut filled. If the base is a pretty colour don't expect the repair to match. It is usually done in black or clear. Probably cosy you about £25-30.

If you are competent at fixing things, then you could have a go yourself with a Ptex candle. That would be my choice.

Thanks for the reply, I assumed it would be cosmetic but thought I'd seek advice incase

I admit I expected it to be cheaper for a repair but I guess that's a bit of naievity on my part.

I think I'll hold out on any repairs for now but may look at maybe a ptex candle

Thanks again!

Try and get some good photos and post them up here for all to see. Then we can give you better help. If you can't see any white core material under the ptex, you'll probably be fine
