Unhappy Epoxy/Ptex Question

I dented the edge of my board this past weekend roughly halfway between my front binding and the tip of the board. I banged the edge back into position but theres a tiny section where some of the ptex broke off (a little less than a 1/2 inch). I sealed it all back up but obviously the area with the missing p-tex is filled in with epoxy. I was wondering if I should remove the epoxy and fill the section in with ptex, or if its not even worth it considering its such a small section and hardly in contact with the snow based on its location. I saw the dent early in the day when i was taking a lunch break, it didnt effect my riding until about 4 hours later when snow had gotten into the crack and frozen which created a bump that i could feel when i engaged that edge

This is my first time doing a board repair so I wasnt sure if it would be likely for the epoxy to pop out or something like that. I used PC-11 marine epoxy which the guy at the hardware store said is their strongest shit.

Just leave it be. As long as it is sealed off from moisture you are ok. Trying to remove the will only make things worse. That being said, keep an eye on the epoxy as it may chip, especially in cold enviroments. If it chips and falls out, replace it with petex then. You might want to take a razor blade to the repair to make sure it is flush with the board.
