topsheet gash

Got my first big topsheet cash on my tail, no idea where it's from, a bit of it is sticking out, a big "splinter" hazard, is there a way to "paste" this back on or should I just clip this bit off?

I'm not clipping it off incase there is actually a very cheap/no fuss way to fix this lol

--edit--

would this be a small delamination? I'm being extremely anal here I think.

wish I had a cam. To describe it fully.

1. my board has a very thin white outline, like 1 mm in thickness, or maybe that's the 2nd layer behind the topsheet
2. the "scratch" "chip" "splinter hazard" is this + 2 mm more about like 1/2 inch or less in length.

I actually think I am being overly anal and should just snip this out.

Oh yeah another question, i have a very shallow scratch, almost horizontal to the structure of the ptex, on the base of my board, shallow as in my finger nail gets in, that's about it, and just the tip of the nail. does this qualify as a repair or just ignore?

This is my first board, around 5th time out, I got cut off like a crapload of times today by people making sudden turns out of nowhere, ran into someone, and had my board ridden over and stuff blah blah. I'm anal lol.

Read around, i know this is normal, I just didn't think the topsheet came off as a splinter hazard sometimes, so I'm wondering.

you could epoxy or use "aqual seal" (stuff to repair wetsuits) cover with wax paper and clamp it, let it dry over night
