Looks pretty well screwed. You could try a bunch of marine epoxy under the base gouge and then trying to clamp it flat and leave for a week or so but could be you are now in the market for a new board.

Man your board did not want to let go of what ever you hit. The base ptex is not super bad but the edge coming off the board that is worse, epoxy and new rock board is what you have.

Don't know of many techs that do edge repairs and none of them ever come out that good. That board is toast.

Well what would happen if I were to continue riding on this board with a gouge like that? I would just be careless with it and may even help me learn some new tricks cuz I wouldnt care about banging it up. would that be ok or will it become rotted real quick and snap or something?

I'm not sure about it snapping but it would become water logged rather quickly. Change the way the board handles and reacts.
