Repairing Topsheet

My son got a decent ding in the top sheet of his Arbor Roundhouse. It's not big, but deep enough to expose the wood core. I was going to seal it with some epoxy, but thought I'd check here to see if anyone has a better solution.

You can also use fiberglass. Depending on size and location you may want to consider if flex or weight is gonna be affected by how much material you add.

IMO the only thing you are worrying about on the top sheet is waterproofing the core. Keep in mind shit will want to pop out when it gets cold and flexed.

If remotely un confident and the board is new/nice, I'd support my local repair guy.

(a little dab of construction adhesive in the hole maybe, that shit is bomber.)

A good flexy epoxy I use is west systems g-flex epoxy.

I've had good experiences with marine epoxy.
