YYYYEeeeeeaaaaaaaa

You could just leave it, unless its too deep. little scraps I dont even worry about just the deep gashes that stupid rocks like to make when you go to certain parks and play (not snow parks) *recreation parks Ie handrails and what not.

I use car wax to polish the top of my board, it works too, it makes it shinier at least lol. But light surface scratches are inevitable after being at the mountain all day, from people running it over or waiting in line or on the lift, sucks but what can ya do.

Being a car-nut, I have a lot of detailing products for my car. I recently used Autoglym Super Resin Polish. Brings the shine right back, and helps the snow slide right off the board, as opposed to getting caked on like it usually does.

Nothing wrong with keeping a board nice and shiny. For deeper scratches, a compound like 3M Ultrafina applied with a rotary polisher (for those of you who have one) will get those expensive boards looking good as new
