Default Board Repair - Big Scratch from a Rock

Ran right over a big rock that was covered by snow on Saturday. My board now has 3 pretty big (but not real deep) scratches that run about 10 inches diagonally near the nose of my board and end at the heal side edge. They arenít real deep, but enough to cause really thin curly string like slices of my base to peel off. It doesnít look like the edges were damaged other than a getting a little scratched.

How should this typically be fixed? I am thinking I can probably just get a base grind to smooth everything out. Would I want to fill the shallow scratches with ptex? I have a sintered base.

My base has plenty of little scratches and dents from riding off piste so I was already considering a base grind before this happened.

Thanks for any advice.

Kinda hard to say without pictures of the base, but I would just diamondstone the edges to smooth them out then ptex and wax

If they're just "curly-string" slices, don't worry about it. If you choose to worry about it, then ptex, a metal scraper to even the repair out and a new wax job.

thanks guys.

I considered doing the p-tex myself but then just decided to pay a little and take it to a local shop for a professional tune, base grind and a little p-tex love. I figured it was about time anyway since I don't think I tune the edges very weel myself and I have a trip to Whistler in two weeks and might as well have my board in top shape.
