board scratches

Took my board to the shop to get it waxed, and it showed up with these scratches that I don't believe were there before. They gave me the waxing for free because of the scratches, but I just wanna make sure they're cosmetic scratches and won't actually impact the life/performance of the board? The scratches are on the TOP of the board (not the base.)

If it's just cosmetic then I don't particularly care, and I'll just cover it up with a sticker or something. Otherwise, is there something I should do?

Is that the base or the topsheet?

More than likely that's from someone dropping a ski or snowboard into your board while it was sitting in the back shop. I've done that more than a few times in my day. Purely cosmetic won't hurt anything just builds character.

the part where the scratch is, you can see it peeling a bit around the scratch. Still doesn't matter, nothing needs to be done right?

thanks

If you're worried take a razor and cut the peeling area off and you'll be golden.

If they did that, get another free wax or something

On the top sheet? One errant board will do that to you on the slope
