Hey everyone! I am new here and realllly need your help. I have a beginners longboard, one made of foam, and it has a slice about 6 inches long on the topside of the board near the left front side, and it also has some other small 1 inch (maybe a bit smaller) gouges around the same area. I have no idea how they got there (they actually almost look like shark teeth holes/slices...) but I am wondering if a beginners longboard is useless when it becomes damaged like this, if it still surf-able even with this damage, or if it MUST be repaired before using. Or maybe it can not be repaired? Anyways, if I have made this unclear let me know. Oh, I can send you pictures if you need them.

Thank you!
