recommended snowboard repair shops in Vancouver

Need to repair some small delamination at the nose of my snowboard.

I know there's quite the selection of places for repair but does anyone have recommendations for places that do the best work?

What kind of board is it? How bad... do you have a photo? On some old boards I had that de-lamed I either left it alone of got some two part epoxy and patched it up enough to finish the season.

Boardroom on west 4th is my go-to place.

Do NOT go to Comor, at least not the one on Boundary/Hastings. All their workers are douchebags and do very shitty work for the price you pay.

It's a Salomon board. The damage is very little and I thought I should try to fix it up to prevent it from splitting more.

Anyone know how Van Ski & Board's work is? I heard they're quite pricey.

Van Ski & Board is probably the best place you can go for any major repairs/tunes. They are pricey but worth it, depending on what needs to be done.

That sounds like a terrible way to do business. And $70 seems a little steep for a tune on a board.

Next time you need your board tuned up, shoot me a PM, I'll work on your stuff personally at our store haha. And I wont bad mouth an Evo.

Haha thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

It wasn't so much the car bashing, it was more so that he was sticking his nose where it didn't belong. We came to get our snowboards tuned.. not to get a life lesson on what to do with our money and cars..

My family has been going there for years haha, not a bad thing to say. The only thing that frustrates me is that they won't put the din up really high on my bindings for liability reasons.

Mind you I picked up an iron there so i won't be going there much anymore. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience, that's pretty retarded man and if I was you I wouldn't be going back either, don't blame ya at all.

Where do you work? How much do you charge for a tune up?

Thanks for everyone's tips and input. I think I'll try Van Ski and Board.
