should I epoxy? (pics)

One of my athletes clipped the nose of my board last weekend. Didn't think much of it until I really took a hard look at it last night...it's not deep and I don't think it punctured to the core but any tips for repairing this?

I was told to just drip some p-tex in there but from what I'm reading I'm thinking some epoxy would work better? I've never used epoxy before but I'm a do-it-yourself-er so not too worried...again...any tips?

I'm thinking I'll shave down/off that little piece of protruding top sheet...

Thanks. (Picture quality isn't the best, I know. Will try to get better shots tonight).

I'd buy some of that 2 part epoxy in the side by side tubes, mix up a little batch and then gunk it in the hole under that little piece that's sticking up. After that I'd clamp it down flat some a little piece of wood or flexible plastic to hold the little piece down while it sets.

If that holds then you're good to go, if not then I'd cut that little guy away and paint with epoxy to keep moisture out.

Agreed ^ p-tex is not designed to fully seal & prevent moisture from wicking in an edge. A high quality 2 part epoxy has worked best for me. I apply more than needed and trim then sand the area smooth after it has cured.

Any recommendations for a brand? Would "marine" epoxy be good?

I wouldn't need to buy "clamps" would I? Could I just set a heavy book on top of that piece sticking up and let it sit overnight?

Headed to Home De-bro after work...

thanks guys

The Loctite brand is good but it isnt necessary to buy the stuff that bonds wet surfaces. Make sure the area is dry using a hair dryer and have at it. You can handle it.

dont get 5 min epoxy, its super brittle. Look from something that takes 24 hours to cure, even better get some west systems gflex its the best for snowboard repairs.
