Beginner question

Hi Guys,

Beginner boarder, been snowboarding for about a season now. I want to buy a used board and found a gnu on craigslist for $80. The only downside is a chip in the edge, but I'm not sure how bad it really is. I've attached a picture; can someone please let me know if this is something a shop can repair with a tune-up and patch? The seller told me he never had a problem with the chip, but it'd be nice if it could be patched up.


I'd really appreciate any help, thanks everyone!

Take 2 part epoxy, mix it up with more resin than hardner make sure it's marine grade. Slather it over the exposed area (clean up area as needed). Put duct tape over it then two pieces of thin metal or wood and c clamp as needed. Let it sit over night. Clean up epoxied area as needed. Go forth and shred from here on out.

Not bad at all, you'll never notice it riding!

Good to get it fixed to stop it growing though
