Thanks guys you've made me feel better about these small gouges. Sounds like p-tex will work ok so Ill ride it out for a while then tune and repair it all in a month or so.
Side note - is it normal for the edges to look like that after 1 day of riding hard pack with 3" of pow on top? I know edges dry out quicker because they are in constant contact with the ground, but this seems fast to need a new wax. Base/edge burn or just normal for a sintered base?
those are all so shallow that p-tex repairs won't stay in them, they'll just pop out. just use a razor blade and trim off any shit that's sticking up, wax your board like normal and that's it.
the gouges need to be deeper than that for a p-tex repair to hold.
