Default Chips on the face edges of my board


So i have a Burton Custom x. Got it last season and love it, but here is my problem... Just from basic wear and tear there are small chips of the top finish all around the edges of the board. Honesty it looks like shit and it really bothers me. The only thing i can think of to fix it would be to sand around the whole top edge of the board so that it looks uniform rather then random chips of paint. But something is telling me that it may be a bad idea to put sand paper to the board... so i was looking for any suggestions or comments on what i should do. Thanks

yes do not take a sander to your board lol.... in all honesty by best advice is to look within yourself find the power to accept the chips as part of your life and board. I mean first and foremost the next time you go out someone will definitely chip your board again, it's a no win battle
Now I lay me down to bed, I pray the lord for pow to shred.
And if Its waist deep when I wake. Epic lines I vow to take.

Sanding is a no go sir. You will ruin your topsheet. The best you can do is clamp it down if the chips are that bad. If it is just paint chips, leave it alone. If they are on the very top of your board, just cover it up with some stickers.

Chips and scratches are unavoidable. If anything, they give your board character.

Ok depending on how bad these chips are, you can take a detuning file and gently file off the knicks and chips. This is what I do when I get a new deck. What I do is I go around the board and gently file down the edges (kinda like rounding them off) this has seem to work for me specialy when standing on the lift line and someone bumps your board with skis or another board. Now if you do this dont go crazy with it, just a couple of yentle passes will do.

The chips are not THAT bad, I would prob say no more then 1/8inch in from the edge of the board. I sorta figured it would be a bad idea to put sand paper to it so i will just accept the chips as the character of the board and proof that i'm shredding all over the mountain. Thanks for the help
