Default To P-Tex or not to P-Tex? That is the question

I know the pix are sort of crappy, but they are the best I can do to show the base damage. Question is, do I P-Tex it or is it not bad enough to warrant that?

Damage is from Tue when I jumped into a bunch of rocks on accident. They were covered with 4" of pow and I didn't see em till I landed in them and tore my base up. It didn't core shot the board, but it looks pretty beat up.

Of course warranty won't cover it. I never said it would.

hard to tell for sure, but the scratches don't look deep enough for ptex to really grab on & hold in there.

hot wax time! smooth it over with a lil' wax & you'll be good to go.

looks like you may have chipped the edge up... if so, you may want to epoxy the damaged areas so water doesn't get inside and swell the core, ultimately causing harshiitus delaminiitus maximus pita.

I would scrape it with a metal scraper before you wax to get rid of any rough debris or ptex hairs and stuff, and then if it still looks deep think about PTEXing it

actually, rough the area up (including the gouge) with sandpaper, and then p-tex it up

So last night I scraped it with a metal scraper and hot waxed it. Most of the gouges and scrapes filled somewhat in...but not all of them. Will definitely be P-Texing it after I ride the new wax off on Sat.

Thanks everybody.

Man, I wish my base looked that good. It's nothing. Cut off any dangling base material. If you think the gouge is deep enough to fill with PTex, go for it. It won't hurt. Welcome to powder riding in Colorado...
