Default Am I Over-Reacting Or?????

So I was riding today and some douche decides to carve infront of me and cut me off while clipping my board in the process causing me to front flip and roll down the mountain.

Just wondering if this needs to be repaired asap? or if its not even that bad. I may be over-reacting because i just bought this board 5 days ago

I've had a worse ding than that on my Heritage for a couple of years now.

Looks like a love tap. You are just breaking it in.

I would throw a little bit of epoxy on that so no water gets between the top sheet. Best to be on the safe side. As for the douche, well he'll get his...don't worry about him!

+1, it only takes a few minutes to do. Not urgent.

Yeah the epoxy is a good idea if you've worked with it before, otherwise I'd just let it go. It doesn't look like it's gauged anywhere into the base, just a little nick on the first few layers of your topsheet laminate. If the gauge was right between your edge and sidewall, then it'd be a different story and you'd want to seal it up, but what you have is more or less superficial. Sorry to hear it was a new deck, but it happens.

The board now has character. Nothing worse than a board that looks like it has never been used

newbs are funny.

That's nothing. No water will get in that tiny scrape. I'd sand out any rough spots and just ride it (the board is already saturated in epoxy, so, unless there's raw wood showing, don't waste your time "fixing" it).
