Core Shot Repair

I had recently suffered 2 core shots to my Skate Banana. One gouge was about an inch long and one was about 4 inches long. I think they were due to jibbing some rocks that I thought had enough snow coverage.

Anyway, I brought it to the repair shop, and they told me that they would need to be filled with epoxy and left overnight. However, since I was leaving that day and only had about an hour before lifts closed, I told them to just fill it in with ptex so I could ride the rest of the day.

Now the thing is, the ptex is still in there and I want to fill the gouges with epoxy. How do I get the ptex out so I can fill it in? Should I just scrape it with a screwdriver? Thanks.

If it's holding then leave it doesn't sound like it was a core shot.

Well I mean before it was filled I could definitely see the wood inside so I think it was a core shot. But that's probably what I'll do, just ride it and fill it in with epoxy if it comes out eventually. It's now my rock board anyway.
