Topsheet crack, serious or whatever?
 
1 Attachment(s)
So while cleaning up my board, I took a look at the topsheet and it seems to have a crack, right at the sidewall in between the bindings. Being equipment OCD as I am, I snapped a photo. It's been two years of normal park abuse (kickers, butters, boxes, rails) but nothing too serious.

Is it fine? Or will I have to epoxy or do something to keep it from getting worse?

For the record, its an Atomic Hatchet.

I bet if you never noticed it, you wouldn't notice any performance loss.
A little epoxy wouldent hurt, but if you have something else going on in there you cant see I doubt it would help all that much either.
At any rate I would try and flex the board back and get as much epoxy in there as I could. Some marine epoxy should do the trick.

It should be fine I think.

It's fine. A little epoxy to ensure no water gets to the wood and you're good to go.
