Question Do you think I need this filled in?

So I got this gouge last season and haven't done anything about it yet so I was wondering if I need it filled or a tune up would fix it.

Personally I would. At least it didn't scratch into the core.

Clean it up really well, get a p-tex stick and melt away.

it's not a core shot, so riding it like that will not further damage your board. If you want the experience of fixing per the previous post, go for it.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. As stated before, if it's not a core shot, you don't really need to do anything. Ptex it in the next time you wax it, or not...

This video will explain everything you need to know. Wax alone will not fix that scratch.

I've had good luck going to a local board shop and them just giving me a stick of p-tex. For cleaner I use goo-gone, because of it's citrus base.

For a scraper, just use either a metal scraper or a plexiglass one. I plan on going to home-depot and asking if they have any spare pieces of thin plexiglass. Once it gets dull just take some sand paper to it.

They use a brush for further cleaning, i'm sure you can find something similar at walmart or around the house.

Make sure you use the blue part of the flame, I made the mistake of using the white part to catch the p-tex on fire and the base part I was fixing turned black. Pretty sick battle scar...
