the 1st picture and the 4th picture are of the board im trying to fix. the other board is beyond saving in my opinion and my 3rd board which was even worse is already in a bunch of pieces in the garbage.

I'd be tempted to glass over the charred area. It would probably delam, but it would be cool if it didn't. Maybe do some real fire art?
i attempted to save the short board today. all of the foam inside melted out and the nose is just a shell from the fiberglass sheets. boards shot. i just spraypinted over it and im makin it a wall hanger. my groveler is goin to the shop tomorrow
I would lose the stacks...
but on a serious note, I feel for ya, man...that blows donkey d*ck...

i dont know how long your board is, but you could try to saw off the burnt part and resand the tip. a friend of mine did that because the bottom of his board buckled, but his board was longer.

Well thats funny you say that OP, because just the other day i was driving home from my buddys shore house with three of my boards packed nice and tight in my travel bag strapped down in the back of my truck this evening and tragedy struck. My truck has stacks. you know the big ugly ones that 18 wheelers have? (not my idea my dad decided to supprise me with them for my birthday last year. i hate them) well they get smoking hot and my board bag slid up on them. my board bag and all three boards went up in flames driving up the parkway. my short board and my step up are both chocked up to a total loss. my groveler however thanks to it being so short was sheilded from the flames. it only got a little yellowing on the nose and the resin swelled up a little.
Basicly what im looking for is some help on saving my last board. i could more then likely get away with riding it how it is now. i think its water tight however i have only riddn it maybe 10 times and it bugges the he** out of me to see it messed up already. does anyone have any ideas how i should go about fixing this thing? maybe someone out there has had a board melt on them by some small chance. im out two boards and im trying to save my last one. any advice at all is greatly appreciated.
