Default Paranoid

So It snowed a bout 1-2 inches yesterday and i took my new board out for the first time, setup a rail and messed around. I came back inside and noticed that my base was scratched up a little, in two spots its pretty deep too. Is this anything to worry about? From who iv'e asked already they said its fine. I think i'm juts a little paranoid.

How deep are the scratches?

Can you see the core?

Theres a small section where it goes through the base but other than that no.

if you do rails and boxes youll most likely get scratches to the clear base ontop of the image on the bottom of your board.. idk honestly how bad that is... i have a couple but i dont notice any difference in my riding

as much as it sucks to see your new board get beat up that's the price you pay if you wanna ride park, especially rails. I'm gonna cry the first real scratch I see on my new board...

as far as i know, riding rails etc will not allow you to keep your board for a 'long time'.
