If it won't lay flat, cut away any excess material and again use two part epoxy to fill the area. This time though you want to spread it evenly almost as if you're sculpting a new topsheet. Then again let it cure and sand/file away.

Epoxy does yellow over time so I've repaired edges that end up looking weird after a couple years. Who cares though as long as the board will still ride...
Thanks for the tip. I actually have never worked with epoxy before. Where do i buy some, and what brand or kind do i need to get?
