Default impacted edge

When I took my board out after the off season I realized that sometime after my last day of riding last year, someone dropped my board somehow and dented one of my edges. I rode it once and have realized that I can't feel it affecting the performance, but I'm just worried that water might seep in somehow and mess up my core. Do you guys think I should bring it somewhere to fix it or should I just leave it alone if its not bothering me? Thanks for the help

you want the quick fix or the good fix? There's two solutions both of which you can do at home.

I guess the right choice would be the good fix. And if the explanation isn't took long I would appreciate the quick fix too since I'm taking it out tomorrow if the good fix takes long

Quick fix go grab some 2 part epoxy mix it with more resin than hardener so it's softer once it dries. Slather it in good on the separation of the sidewall and hit it with a heatgun/blow driver then put more on it cover with duct tape for 24 hours and let it dry. Peel the duct tape off take a metal scraper or razor blade and clean the excess and go ride.

Proper repair take a razor knife cut the bulged part of the base out. Take an awl and put it in there and hit it with a hammer bending the edge back to the proper position. Epoxy sidewall and base area let it dry for 24 hours then base weld/fill the cut out section with ptex. Good thing is it's a NS their edges actually bend back easiest out of any board I've ever done. I've probably fixed 20 or 30 of those over the last few years. Bad news nothing really the god damn thing is built like a sherman tank.

Okay sounds easy enough thanks a lot for the help. Think I'll damage my core if I take it out a couple times before I repair it?

Eh just let it dry out and you'll be fine.
