Currently bought a new snowboard this winter and used it for the first time this weekend. The mountain i went too had horrible trail conditions. The trails was all ice or grass. Every time i was slowing down my board would make a really bad grinding sound and i think that is how my board chipped.

It doesn't look like any of that damage is from riding. Looks like it was banging around in a box with a bunch of other boards or got dinged up by other riders/skiers in the lift line. Looks rideable though. I wouldn't worry too much about any of that except for maybe the first pic. Just take it to a shop if you're unsure.

You only need to worry, and only a little bit if you see any wood. If it's cracked to the core (wood) then all you have to do is get some epoxy and fill it in as best you can, let it dry, then sand if you want. But all those look pretty superficial and I wouldn't worry too much about it. Your board will still ride fine.

looks like a ski or board (probably ski ;) ) slashed your board in the lift line, no biggie.

A wee daub of epoxy will seal that up and she's good to go
