You sure on that 1-2 cm depth?!? That's likely thicker than the board itself!

If it's deep enough that it concerns you, ptex it. It costs almost nothing and doesn't take that long. The superficial gouge is nothing to worry about, no matter how long.



Here's some gouges I had earlier this year. The one in the centre is the only one worth filling with ptex. The others are just waxed over...





And after ptexing and waxing...

Thats definitely worth it to ptex(the cm deep scratch). If you have the option, the black p tex generally seems to look nicer after than the clear IMO, depending on the color of your board too.

Ride that shit 'til it snaps in half, then go buy a new one.

I'm a skateboarder.

Unless I'm totally out to lunch there's no such thing as "ptex wax"...

Ptex is base material that you melt into the gouges on your board, let cool, scrape flat, and then hot wax over. Unless the gouges are bad there's really not much of a need to ptex.

You could bring it in for a base grind and repair one day... I've got about 60 days on one of my boards and it's been over enough rocks I think it's ready for a base weld and grind. I attempted ptexing the gouge myself but it's in a heavily used area and about half the repair came out over the next rock.
