Chips on Topcoat?

Brand new board.. was my first time out and somehow this happened (it was pretty icy that day..) Looks like it just took off the "black part". Apologies! this is the first time asking about tech on a snowboard. I couldn't find the correct term for it, but most places either say epoxy it (the longer setting kind) or leave it.

Thanks!

Lift lines can be a bitch. Especially with skiers jamming their tips up your ass.

Yup idiots in the lift lines. Just make sure it's dry and put some epoxy to be sure, to keep the moisture out. maybe even marine epoxy

Is there a good guide for doing this? I've just read to sand the area before and after the job and paint with acrylic paint if you want after.. Is that the jist of it? ( didn't really wanna spend money on this repair... Would probably cost half of what I paid for the board)

Grab a razor blade and a file and clean up the dings, get rid of splinters and loose crap. Stick epoxy on there to seal it and call it a day. Those sorts of dings are order of the day, unfortunately. Unless the sidewall is damaged (its looks okay from what I can see), you're just fine. If you're not feeling too confident in your own abilities, just run it by the shop and they'll clean it up for you.

For the record, its called a top sheet.

Yeah I wouldn't worry much. These things happen. If you're worried about them, I'd take a file or coarse sandpaper to remove any burrs, then use some 2-part epoxy to build up a thin protective layer on it.

If there's no wood showing, it's not going to hurt it anyway...

Where have I heard that before.

Oh wait did I say that out loud?

Yeah slap some epoxy on it who cares how good of a job you do. Just seal it up to keep moisture out.
