Thanks for the resposes,
What is considered a bad gouge? I just took a look at my board and I have one gouge that is 2 inches long, half inch wide and gradually gets deeper into my base to about 1-2 cm deep. Another gouge is fairly superficial but it literally goes the length of my board
Ride that shit 'til it snaps in half, then go buy a new one.
