Default Gouge on the new board

Hi All -

I'm new to owning a snowboard, so I figured I'd ask in hopes that someone can help me out.

I picked up a 158 Arbor Element about 2 weeks ago and hit the mountain with it for the fist time this past Saturday. Getting off the lift, another rider came into me with his board and put a huge chip / gouge on the tail edge of my board. It tore into the top sheet and lifted up a piece of it up pretty badly.

Since I've never owned a snowboard before, I've had plenty of rentals with chips and gouges all over, and I've never really had a problem with them. This being my own gear tho, I figured it's probably best to try to fix it somehow, or get it fixed.

Any ideas of what I should do? I've read that gouges can be fixed with epoxy, but I'm not sure if that would work on the edge.

Thanks!
