Default Advice for repairing my mervin board

Hey guys,
I recently got the tail of my T rice destroyed by a skier. It took a pretty decent sized chunk out of the tail - and even though it still rides great it looks terrible and I'd prefer to fix it. I recently ordered a repair kit from Amazon (it includes 10 p tex strips, three buffing pads, and a metal scraper) as well as marine grade waterproof epoxy. Could someone walk me through the process of repairing my baby? Pictures are below. Thanks guys

A board with metal edges all the way around wound of made this thread irrelevant...! Simply because it would not of happened...

As for fixing, i would look at as many tutorials as you can online, and if you don't think you are capable after, then get it done properly at a store...!

Personally, i would just seal it with epoxy and be done with it, i really don't stress for such things anymore...

Built tough because it seems their riders are a bit lacking in brain department if they can't work a rack. kidding of course.

I could care less what side of this debate people are on. Just saying I knew where this thread would lead.

Lesson learned that day was to never stick ur brand new board on a craiglist rack bought by a mouth breathing friend

I didn't come here to start a flame war.
That being said, would an epoxy suffice, since the damage is on the tail?
Should I p tex it?

They are inevitable, don't feel bad!

I would just epoxy and make sure you put it under some good pressure to fix where it bulges. C claps with some wood on either end, etc. Before you epoxy try to get it so that it clamps nice and firm. You only get one shot with epoxy

Seriously, i would just seal it with epoxy. Why stress over it...

You never ride on the tail and even if you did, would you notice it...??? As long as the damage is minimised as far as it doesn't get any worse, that is the best you can really expect...
