ok so this is not a guide how to make a messed up deck as good it was the day you bought it but it might give it between 2 weeks and one month more to live. after all-we all know what happens when the tail or the nose crashes into the ground/wall-heres a simple and cheap way to fix it.

materials: first thing you need is a simple liquid glue that you can buy from your local hardware store-the cheapest one(you know the white one). as strange as it may seem thats a great solution. second thing you need is a simple vice like the one below.

so heres how it goes

1. take off the broken piece and put glue all over it and on the deck as well. stick it on and leave it like that for about 20 minutes.

2. after those 20 minutes tighten the vice as hard as you can over the broken piece so all the glue thats in, filling the empty spots, is squeezed out

3.leave it like that for about 2 hours. after that just take the vice off and see if there are any holes left and if there are carefully fill them in with glue and leave it like that till the next day.

so here you go-your deck has a few more weeks to live. cheers!

Wouldnt recommend this either, did it a few years ago but isnt worth it. It doesnt really add any live to the deck, just prolongs the mere fact you havent come to terms with the fact the decks fucked.

Vice = G clamp.. you know, cos it's shaped like a G..?
I probably wouldn't bother with this, maybe if I was extremely bored or really strapped for cash..
