|keller19xc||I'm not exactly sure how deep it was but the first picture looks pretty much like mine, thanks for all your help!|

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...

Thanks for the resposes,
What is considered a bad gouge? I just took a look at my board and I have one gouge that is 2 inches long, half inch wide and gradually gets deeper into my base to about 1-2 cm deep. Another gouge is fairly superficial but it literally goes the length of my board

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.

Gouges in snowboard
I've been riding terrain park for a few years and have recently started noticing deep gouges in my snowboard, I never use to get these mainly just scratches. I'm thinking about getting a p tex wax, how well do p tex waxes work? I've never got one before usually just hot waxes.
