Help with a ding diagnosis

So I discovered this today and I'm in park city utah...I'm from virginia...so I'm no where near home and can't take this to a local shop to look at. I just want to know if this should be ok for the remainder if my trip or if it needs repairing ASAP (also who know how long it's been like this).

I thought I read the wood core of my Skate banana is more to the center so this shouldn't be absorbing water with risk if freezing and delaninating my board, correct me if I'm wrong on this assumption. I just want to know if I need to take it to a shop (hopefully for a short repair because I don't have my spare board) before I hit Canyons tomorrow or if this is mainly cosmetic and it should last a few more days.

Thanks guys!

Just fill it with something like wax for the day if you're that concerned. The wood core on Mervin boards stops where the metal edge stops with the tip and tail being all plastic. It looks like you hit it right where it switches from core to plastic tip/tail.

I would either need to find some epoxy then or take it to a shop in the morning, my only concern is the cure time.

Also my board did come with a small gap/ maybe a little filled at the other edge endings, it just so happens that I ding it right at that one spot

im sure there is a hardware store or walmart in town... Hell, i bet a pharmacy like CVS, walgreens, or rite aid might have some gorilla glue or something you could use for the time being.

I like that mentality, I only express concern as this being a new board I would hate to let 500$ go to waste because I neglected nick that exposed moisture to my boards layers and cause more damage

Epoxy it and let it sit for atleast 12 hours. It'll be fine.
