You can base weld it and it should be fine. Ptex candles will not hold for very long. Probably not even a day. You can buy metal grip repair string at Tognar and do it yourself. You'll need to get the Ptex Iron to use it. Stuff works pretty well. Make sure that you cut away the excess Ptex hanging off your board and iron that shit in good. Plane it off (Versa planer, something else you'll need) and you're good to go. Stuff works very well. Though with your size of a gouge, it may not also hold. Best bet would be to take it into the shop and get a proper base weld. Done right, there should be no reason it wouldn't hold. I've had several gouges like that base welded over the years. Not problems with them holding. Well until I hit another rock and made a bigger hole. Such is life though.

Sounds like there might not be an open end but rather a square 90 degree point (4" square for the top + 4" square for verticals).

If I'm right, that's one of those "put an eye out" kind of builds.

Cold rolled steel does have pointed edges. Just cuz a mechanic built it doesn't mean it was built correctly. Time to post some pics of your rail ...

I don't think dripping ptex in it will last long. A base weld will be ideal and should hold up well. No reason to ask your friend to buy you a new board.

Shit happens even at resorts. You let a bud borrow it and its your rail. Just get it fixed right and chalk it up to bros having a good time.
Still waiting on pics if the rail....

I built a kicker in the center to get on the rail and my friend said "I can hop on, i don't need it." He hit the corner. He went a little to the right from the kicker.There was obviously more snow. It melted.

Looks like its the sharp square end that gouged your board. Ever see a park rail that looked like that?

Hahaha. Cudos to whoever helped you make that, but those are sharp ends bud. The approach end need to be bent to reduce the chances of catching on it if you are going to use metal.
