Scraper marks

hey guyz,

the other day I was waxing my board and i was gettin to the last bit of wax to scrape off but I just couldn't manage to get it off easily. In an attempt to get it off the corner of my scraper left a scratch or rather a mark on on my base. It doesn't seem to be an indentation but i cannot remove the mark.

Has anybody had the same dramas? would I need P-TEX (or whatever it is called) to repair it? like I said its more a mark than a scratch but looks like a scratch, there doesn't seem to be a cavity or indentation. It hard to describe exactly but atm I feel that its more a cosmetic thing than something that would affect the board but I'm not sure.

thoughts?

I have lots of indents on the bottom of my board. They don't really affect performance. Unless the scratch goes to the core or is at the edge, you won't have a problem. The ones that reach the core or are near the edge can cause moisture to get inside and damage the board, otherwise, it's just cosmetic.

How easy is it to tell if a scratch reaches the core? Will you actually see the wood?

It would be very deep. I don't actually have any that go that deep so I couldn't tell you. I would think you would notice. It would be a different texture or color.

You're fine if it's not even an indentation. If you are really anal about it could sand it out or get a base grind, but it's not at all worth it from a performance point of view. You would definitely know if it was a core shot or close to it... it'd be at least a few mm deep gouge into the board and it would be very ugly and noticeable.

Are you using a metal scraper? I would suggest switching to plastic if you want to avoid it in the future.

Edit:
Also, seeing as it's a Morrow board, I wouldn't even worry about whether you damage it or not. It is a pricepoint board, it's meant to be thrashed.

Marks are natural for a snowboard and P-Tex is only for deap base wounds not scratches. If anything you could take it into your local shop a have them grind it out with a base grinder (it sounds worse than it actually is). Think of it as a surface scratch on a car, you can get it buffed out.
