Chips on board.
After riding my brand new Arbor Element for a few days, it's chipped on the side. It's gorilla glue+filing down a good remedy for this?

I've used 2 part epoxy for this, never tried gorilla glue.

I take a diamond stone or file and smooth out the nick or chip the best I can before I epoxy it. Then I use the slow setting epoxy (not the 5 or 60 min quick set stuff) and fill in the chip. Let it set overnight, Then file down smooth.

Pretty easy.

Is this something you SHOULD do for small chips on the side of your board? I got a few on my new board this season but didn't really think much of it. It's a snowboard; it's going to get nicked up.

If I don't do something with the chips, do I run the risk of damaging the board (i.e. delaminating?)?

Unless you're super anal about that stuff, no.

I mean, take a good look at it. If it looks like something that could possibly delam on you, ya, you might want to epoxy it.

For the small ones though, I just smooth them out with a diamond stone and call it good.

When i get home from boarding, I usually clean up my board and wipe down my edges, so i find it easy to just give the sidewalls a once over right then.
