Default Snowboard repair

Well I have come to terms and have decided to ask a community of people about my predicament. I have a snowboard that i bought used with a chipped topsheet in several places. Most if not all of the chips go down to the wood core and I was wondering if it would even be worth repairing or is the damage done by now. Also if a piece of the topsheet is missing altogether and exposing the wood core completely how would I fix this, if it was worth fixing. I'd assume just using epoxy and something like wax paper to make a kind of temporary "mold". Or would I just pour it in like if the topsheet was peeling away. Thanks in advance. Heres some pics for reference

Would the varnish keep out the water though? And how would i get the epoxy into that sort of a curved nose type shape... so it doesn't look like i just slapped some epoxy on?

Throw a little epoxy on there and you're good to go.

Yup, this will keep the core from getting wet.

Just paint the epoxy on. Sand down later if bumpy if you're really uptight otherwise just epoxy then ride it.

If you're worried about keeping the edge neat then just use some masking tape along the curved edge itself and leave some vertical overhang. i.e. don't tape the topsheet. Use that as a makeshift form for the epoxy. Marine epoxy works good, a bit more flexible. It doesn't matter that much though, I think any will pretty much do. The only thing that really matters is keeping the water out.
