On runway 24 at west 95 aircraft veered to the left. This was a short field takeoff with brakes and full power until brake release. It appears that when brakes were released, nose tire deflated, caused aircraft to veer to left. Aircraft exit runway to left, when left main ext (sand) cause nose to come more left and nose gear fold. Aircraft stopped with right main still on runway, approximately 200' after start of takeoff.
