Default Dented edge help!

So i was out the other day and tried to jump up on a log rail...to make a long story short i didnt jump high enough and ended up bashing the side of my snowboard pretty good. The dent is right in the middle. Im trying to figure out if i should let it be or try to do something to it. I still snowboarded on it that day and it didnt seem to cause any handling problems, but i could hear it grinding on the ice. Heres some pictures to help. (if it makes a difference the board is a Burton Hero 155)

Might be repairable, take it to a good shop.

i m with Zee, If theres a good shop near you, take it there and find out how much it would be to fix it. if there are no good shops around, or if theyre charging a ridiculous amount of $$$, just leave it be.

its not too serious an issue, last year the same thing happened to me, and i still rode that board the rest of the season.

its your call really...

Looks more like someone took a bite out of it than a dent. Maybe it can be repaired, but the real question will be... will it perform the way it's supposed to afterward?

I guess it would be like him having one dip of Magnetraction.
