    I'd just seal that one up and clamp it. Do your best to get epoxy to wet out the delam

    Does the sidewall sound hollow if you tap it w/ a screwdriver handle?

    Any tips?

    Whacked my ski good.

    Both edges are blown out a little, but seem to be solid still-- so I just plan to bend those back into place and then put two long base material patches down both sides of my ski. Not sure about delamination/if I should do anything special about the fact that the base is bubbled 1-2mm lower than the edge (you can also see the stress marks in the sidewall, which spook me a little).

    This is my first real surgery outside of binding mounting/ski tuning so I'm a little nervous to just dig in with a knife but this thread is super helpful so thank you! Just wondering if you see anything I should pay particular attention to here or if it is pretty straightforward? Also, is there anywhere to pick up base materially locally (REI, maybe my local ski shop will sell it, I dunno) or should I get the stuff from tognar? Thanks in advance.

    I am working on figuring out how to get the pics embedded on here. Maybe can't post pics because I'm new? They are at imgur(not .net)/a/ID8cINt

    I came into some skis that I want to give to a friend, but which have a small edge compression/crack (pics). Base and sidewall seem intact. No sure what the preferred repair would be, squirt some epoxy in there? Replace a section of the edge? Not worry about it until it gets worse? WWTD (what would tuco do)?

    Thanks all!

    You can see the seal is broken from base/edge and edge/sidewall. I'd straighten out that edge. Once it's straightened, it'll be easier to get epoxy in there. Work epoxy into delam well then clamp and continue heat until cured.
    Also if you can tap sidewall w/ screwdriver handle and it sounds hollow, you're probably best off going base patch route so sidewall can be addressed

    Welcome.
    Straighten edge just like that pic up^^^there. Clamp something ridgid to base w/ clamps over where the edge goes straight so you don't further delam your edge

    Awesome work.

    I drilled a small hole through the topsheet and used one of those adhesive windshield repair vacuum discs with a Mityvac pump to suck warmed epoxy from along the edge into a small delam once, it surprisingly worked.

    Anybody want to take on a small one? I donít have the skills/patience. 2020 186cm gs skis are otherwise really nice. Hate to just throw them in the closet. $100+shipping?

    Just use that on the outside edge and ride like normal? Doesn't seem that bad.

    PSA: Repair you own fucking edge compression

    Not my skis, but wondering how Ďíseriousíí the experts feel this edge compression is. Looks minor to me, but what do I know. Would you bother trying to clamp a fix? Or just epoxy to prevent water from getting in? Doesnít seem like the top sheet or sidewall have bubbled.

    Probably just make sure it's sealed and keep an eye on it. Edges have slight surface rust and it looks like it may have propagated under the base @ compression site(slight rusty tone under base). If it gets worse or you decide you want to throw a patch in you can straighten edge then.
    See if you can probe a razor blade into the sidewall/edge interface to see extent of delam.
    Kinda like thisClick image for larger version.

    Sometimes it's easier to get good epoxy penetration(sealing) by just doing to repair proper.

    Iíve put a clamp at each end of the bend and slowly tapped straight with a punch and hammer. Them, leaving clamps in place added epoxy and heat to get the epoxy to penetrate. Usually works pretty well for the small ones
