Not trying to hijack the thread, but I had a bit of similar damage on the tip of the tail of my board occur this weekend. Now I'm not here cryin' about "Oh No, my pretty, pretty board"! I already had a bit of damage in this spot prior, but after a really good switch wipeout, it peeled back about a 1/4 inch & 1.5-2 inches across.

I would like to know if I can (...or should) glue it down so it won't get peeled back any further next time! (...cuz I'm certain there will be a "next time"!)

I'd like to know if there is some specific kind of epoxy I should use, or is any slow set stuff OK? I'm planning to samich the glued spot between two small blocks of wood & clamp it tight. Want to be sure I don't use something that might damage the top sheet.
