Question First time riding board damage

Hello!
I'm a relatively new to snowboarding and I bought a board two weeks ago and I rode it for the first time today for two hours at the snow dome where I rode mainly rails, jumps and boxes, like tail grabs and 180s.

So I come home and I see some chips on the nose and tail and in the middle with some scratches or whatever on the bottom, as I've never had my own board I wouldn't know if this is normal, the pictures below aren't great but should I be concerned? I don't want any delamination.

The chips on the nose and tail will be other boarders and skiers in the queue, the scratches on the bottom are what you get when you ride rails and boxes...

It is what it is and happens to EVERYONE that rides these features...

Congrates on your 180s rails and boxes as stated play in mud you get dirty.

Thanks you, glad I found this sport, I love it!

So nothing to be concerned about? No repairs needed?

I never worry about chips, and the base is something that unless really gouged out i never worry about either...

You will probably end up with a couple of boards, a board you can trash in the domes, and a board for holidays.

Just think about what you want and what you are using them for, but at the end of the day, boards will get damaged, it is just how it is...

Which dome do you ride...??? They should have attached stores where you can get waxing etc done, if you are really concerned ask in there, they are better placed to see damage and how bad...
