Default minor damage to board.. fix it?

Hey I bought myself a Nitro Pantera last week, took it out 3 times and it's already got some kewl battle-scars!!

I can see the wood underneath where the topsheet has been chipped. Would there be a potential for water to get inside?

Judging by the pics, would you say that I should p-tex it or just let it be??

I've removed the jagged parts (cut 'em off, should I use sand paper too?) to prevent further damage, but I'm wondering if that's enough..?

Thx!!

i have the same problem only five rides on my board too!!! what i learned, don't ride to close to your noob friends. Honestly sand it so it can't spread and keep chipping and put a little bit of epoxy on it and you will be good as new.

Sand it a little to get the rough edges off and put some epoxy on there. At least you won't fret over getting that first mark on it anymore.

Thx for all the tips guys I really appreciate it!!

I've researched this on the forum and apparently marine epoxy is the best stuff.

I went to home depot and this is all they had:

LePage - LePage Marine Epoxy - 10-00397-0 - Home Depot Canada

It says it's good up to -23. Which is kinda shit considering I'm from Montreal and it can get colder than that on the slopes.

Also its setting time seems pretty low (60 mins). I was looking for something that took like all week to cure. It's a 2 part epoxy tube, so I'm assuming it'll work. Will it do?


As for the sandpaper, you guys recommend what? I bought 180 grit.

thx!!

Shit marks like that are nothing more then an eye-sore, and usually a top layer blemish like that is from some greenhorn going a bit faster then they can control.

Hey girls, get over it...idk but sanding might help to prevent slivers while humpin it at night under your snuggie.

but if concerned about a water delam issue, use mcnett aqualseal or a softer flexible epoxy
