That's some pretty deep damage. I would imagine you would P-Tex that thing, but I don't know a whole lot about P-Texing on the count that I never damage my boards that bad.

Defiantly needs some Ptex but nothing that will ruin the performance of the board. Take it to shop and you'll be all good

Oh wow. I've never done anything like that to my boards. But that's probably because I'm not that good. Lol

"Stones" my ass. Something is fishy here. The rest of base looks pristine with what looks to be surgical cuts in the base. I don't know what the hell happened here, but you didn't just hit some "stones".

Still, that can be p-tex'ed.

Looks like a screw was hanging out of the top of a box

Something like this seems far more likely.

Damn I've never seen a gouge that surgical for sure.

But, looks like a perfect candidate for some Ptex. The cleaner the gouge the better. Fill 'er up and ride.

the volcanic rock that we ride around out here could easily make a gash just like that. i have an old rock board with pretty much the same thing.

yes, you usually do see some other shallow scratching on the base, but if only a single point of rock was showing this kind of damage would be typical.

Oh hell, I've done similar gouges out here. Not nearly as long. You got a core shot. Regular ptex ain't going to cut it. You can get a Ptex Iron and metal grip from Tognar and do it yourself. Looks like Ptex string but it adheres fairly well to metal and wood. That is the fix I usually do with shots like that. It doesn't always last, but it's easy enough to do again. Otherwise, take it into a shop and get a base weld done. That'll solve your problem. Either way get it patched up as moisture can get into your board and that's no bueno.
