Just riding my brand new never summer sl today.. Checked the bottom of the base and there was 2 deep gouges/scratches not deep enough to the wood core but pretty deep, pretty worried since its brand new what should I do
if the gouge is parallel to the edge, I'd just consider it deep structure and ride it as-is. If it's perpendicular to the edge, I'd probably drip some p-tex in there....but if your base isn't black, it's gonna look like shit.
in our super duper crappy season last year, I got about 10 core shots (wood showing)...one of them was on a brand new board. You'll get over it.
