You serious? Just hit it real quick with an edge sharpener and you're good to go. I bet the edges of my board look worse than that right now.

It's pretty deep to make a legit edge i'd have to file it down like all the way

You don't need to file it down, just hit it with an edge tool. It's what, 3" long at most? It's not gonna impact the ride. They're snowboards, shit happens. They're not gonna stay pristine forever if you're out there riding them.

A hand sharpen isn't gonna do shit. Take it to a shop. It will never look perfect but at least it'll be done right. And let them know you iust want a standard edge grind. Dont try and "fix" it.
