Default PROTO HD. SCRATCHES! Brand new. Help

Quick one.

Brand new NS proto, which has been riding like a dream btw.
Off piste today and hit a few hidden rocks leaving a couple of scratches/gouges in the base. One of them has a slight colour change from the blue base to white but no wood. Not a core shot??

Anyway. Am away with wax, iron and edge tool but no ptex. Will be away for 5 more days riding.

Give it a good wax and take it into shop when I get back to the uk?
Or do I need to so something now?

Excuse my ignorance, first damage to my beautiful new board!

Hotel internet is a shocker so no pictures will upload ATM. Will try later.

Thanks guys!!

Can we get some pics? And If you're really worried go to a shop and pick up some ptex.

All of these NS board damaged threads crack me up. Soon it will be known as a company that makes bad bases.....Reminds me of Arbor a few years back.... In reality it is just more people riding them over the last few years which leads to more problems (not per sale but total)

Ha I know... And I'm sure there are certain people on here who would love to see NS go downhill...

Working on the pictures. Have waxed her good and proper to give her a fighting chance.

Here's the pictures hopefully.
Any merit in waxing and leaving more on, I.e not scraping so vigorously and having a bit more protection on there?

I don't see any pictures. Are you on a tight budget? Take it to a local shop and they can fix it in a hour or so usually. I wouldn't want to get moisture in the board if you've cut thru the base.

The hotel internet is pretty lousy... Can't manage even one photo.
I've waxed it and it doesn't look so bad, maybe I was being overly touchy cos it's new. Will upload pics when I can or wen I'm back from trip to give a better picture.

On the plus side, the top sheet is solid... No pesky queue chips or delams with this board!
