How much can a board take?
How much gouges and scrapes can a board take before it starts to slow down noticeably while riding even after a hot wax? Due to early season conditions that are still plaguing resorts close to me I have acquired several gouges and scrapes on my board, mainly on the heel edge. I have not noticed any difference in speed but was wondering how much more can the board take?
If there isn't enough ptex left to hold wax in a gouge you should probably weld it. But as long as there is wax on the base and it's smooth enough to not cause drag, you should be okay. Proper maintenance will define how long you can stretch out your boards durability.
