Dropped half of my newish splitboard while transitioning to crampons this weekend (doh!). It took a ride without me, caromed off some rocks and, as you can see below, got a bit busted up.

I managed to bend the edge back in and cut off the P-tex flap well enough to finish my day (pliers are a splitters best friend) but this repair is a bit beyond my level of expertise and I haven't had anyone else tune my gear since a bad experience 6 years ago. Anyone have any suggestions for quality edge work and base repair in my general vicinity?

Wattabike (and ski) in Meyers is my go to shop. That nose is probably not gonna look brand new again but I bet they could make it functional and seal the base.

This time of year they are focused on bikes but I saw them doing some ski work when I was in there a week or so ago.

What's worse than watching your snowboard rocket down a line sans pilot... Watching half your snowboard take a ride :cry: .

Go to Shoreline on Kingsbury Grade South Lake Tahoe, ask for Dave T. He is the master!

Another thumbs up for WattaBike/Vertical Sports in Meyers.
