Default 1st time out with new board - base gouge/gash (repair experts please help)

Hey guys. I took out my new Rossi Krypto out for the first time up to crystal yesterday. Let me first say this board is amazing and I absolutely am in love with it.

When I got home I noticed this nice gash running side to side near my heel edge. I know its not bad, but fucking shit I am kicking myself for not being careful.

Now I am just a boarder and do not know much about base tech/repairing/etc, but I have read that for little things on sintered bases you can just use P-tex... but I am not sure if that is needed here. If I pass over it tip to tail with my plastic wax scraper, I can definitely feel it get caught there.. Anyways, I wanted to ask the experts here for some help... Please... what do you guys thing/recommend I do?

Here are some pics... They are HD and quite big so you guys can see everything, so I am just putting links below so as not to have everyone load 3 fat pics everytime when entering this thread. Please let me know what you think!
