Default do i need a new board?

basically, my board is pretty beat up, and i dont know if all i need is some ptex, a wax and sharpen.. or a new board all together.
my question isnt what i should get its just if my board is done.
its an 08 burton dominant, used for 100% park. jibs, rails, jumps, homemade jibs, street ridigs, all that.
i looked at it in detail the other day and really realized how bad shape it was in.
im gonna post some pics, let me know if you think it can still be salvaged, or if i should just invest in a new one.

Thanks alott to anyone whose nice enough to help.

p1 pictures by skate5 - Photobucket
theres some pics of the base and topsheet.

I dont see a thing wrong with that board. no gouges, no core shots, no delam.... whats the problem? on the base, there are a few scratches that could get filled in with p tex.but thast it. it looks fine.

well you cant really tell from the pics but there are alot more gauges in the base. how do you know when it needs ptex, and not just some wax.

Id say if its more than a nick fill it with P tex. Im a freak about keeping my board maintained.

yeah some of the scratches are pretty deep.
i think im just gonna take it to my friend who manages a board shop and ask him to do a complete fix.
i trust he knows what hes doing.

That Dom base really hides scratches.

well today me and my friends did a little turf riding on a homemade box on this 95 degree day in nj,
and i realized im gonna go ahead and get a new board for the snow. keep this one for this type of thing. i like to ride in the city on snowy days too so this board will be good to have for that.
loved what it did though, all around good jib park board.
now i just gotta find something new.. so many choices out there these days
