bad day for my board

today me and my friend decided to go to a little hill in our neighborhood and take our boards cus we have snow. we brought a smooth wood rail that he randomly had, and another smooth piece of wood that used as a box kinda thing. after going a few times i turned my board over and noticed the plastic base cover thing was getting scraped off in long thin lines in a couple spots and there was a line that was raised up. I don't know what was causing the plastic base protective layer to come off cus the things we were riding on were really smooth but i think i hit a few sticks that were under the snow so maybe from them. on the next run down my friend was still down at the bottom, and you have turn really quick when you reach the bottom cus its kinda in the woods and then theres a street there so you have to turn sharp once the trees get outta the way and after a sewer but before the street. well my friend was still laying there and i avoided him and the sewer but i went out on the street and kinda chewed up my toe side edge a little on the pavement needless to say i called it a day after that. how bad of damage is all of this? will i notice the roughed up toeside edge when i go to colorado wednesday? is there anything i can do to my board?

Worst case, all you do is a nice soaking hot wax and and an edge job. If you goudged it bad enough, just get a ptex candle. I don't think a shop could do a major repair be Tuesday night unless you rushed it.
