Took off wax down to base

Today I set up my rail to practice a little bit. I went to tail slide and caught the beginning of my rail with my board. I ripped off the wax down to the base for about an inch or two. Is this repairable?? I have a rome agent if that means anything. Please help this is my only board.

Sounds like a core shot. Can you post some pics? It is most likely reparable but you seriously need a good smooth bend in a rail so you dont gash up your board.

That's an easy fix...I've had way worse that go all the way to the core. But def do something about the sharp edges on your rail because it will only get worse.

I would not ride it until you get it fixed...Just my opinion. Moisture getting to the core is never a good thing.
