Default deep scratch on top layer, need cover-up?

i have a pretty deep scratch on the top layer of the board (top/binding side). would leaving this alone affect the longevity of the board in any way? should i just get some all-weather acrylic paint or something and fill in the gap?

I'd say fill it up if its very deep - use epoxy or superglue or soemthing. Just make sure it will handle cold temperatures...

depending on how deep it is, clear nail polish works pretty well.

Put a sticker over it. Appliance touch-up paint may work well too.

Hi all, just joined this forum. I've just got a decent size scratch on the top of my board, was thinking about filling it with clear P-Tex, any thoughts on this? the scratch is on the top and edge, cheers Andy

not p-tex. i wouldnt think it'd stick very well to the topsheet either.
just mixx the technies above and fill the scratch with epoxy/super and
then cover it up with a sticker.
