Is this base damaged

I have a k2 Parkstar and as i was going down a mountain i hit a set of rocks, a good part of the base got scratch but i took some pics of the worse parts so you guys could help me determine if all i need is to rewax or some type of special treatment.

Just scrape away the jagged base material with a razor blade and you'll be good to go.

It's hard to tell how deep it is from the picture...

But each imperfection in a base will affect your speed

Filling it with wax won't solve the problem though.... It will come right back out.

Just p-tex it, maybe it will hold, maybe not. But don't pay someone to p-tex it... It's not very big

This. I'd just scrape off the excess and call it good. I've got some worst than that I never filled. No noticeable impact at all.

Yes, your base is damaged. It's got a cut and needs a band-aid..I'd repair it yourself.. It's not brain surgery! These scratches affect speed and if deep enough, snow snakes have been known to get in there and haul your sorry ass down!
No stitches necessary but I'd scrape the little curlies smooth and put some p-Tex on. Shops have black sticks if you want to keep the aesthetics up to par. After that, give her a good wax and she'll love ya for it.
Then again if you've got expendable income and is going to jib concrete tomorrow, forget it!!

pfftt.. dude. that's nothing. I don't know how you can ride without getting scratches and cuts like that. the way I ride , I get one or two like that almost every time I go out. Unless you're riding on the groomers exclusively, you will get lots of those. not a big deal.
