Top Sheet Chip/Scratch?

Hey guys, my newish (3rd time out) '08 Burton Custom Andy Warhol seems to have a chip on the backend of the board, on the right side. The topsheet seems to have come off, and it looks like I can see a little bit of wood showing. How do I take care of this?

My topsheet was peeling off a bit after hitting a rock. My shop worked a miracle and made it look great, used a marine grade epoxy.

A real shop can fix that if the damage is as you described. Core-shot repairs involve drying out the wood with heat and building up the layers in the gouge again, but a pro can do it, and do it well.

If you've got serious edge deformation (you look fine, but the picture's fuzzy)... that's a bit more terminal.

As for surface scratches in the topsheet, get used to it, it's the nature of the beast. They won't be the last, not by a long shot. Think of them as badges of honor, like notches in a gun hilt... that helps ease the pain of watching your new baby get beat up at school.

Another hint: If you've got a laquered toplayer on that board (common on Burtons when I rode them a few years ago, don't know what they put on there now), don't go around stomping it to clean it off in the cold, you can easily crack that top clear-coat. While this won't do anything to hurt performance, the cracks are very obvious.
