I have been riding a pair of Line chronics for 1 year and am just starting my second year with them. They keep getting more and more beat up and I'm trying to get them through at least one more season. I have couple of problems that I am unsure of how to handle.
1. Topsheet: My topsheet all over the sides of the ski is getting beat up. This isn't my biggest concern but now wood is showing in a lot of places and I don't want water to get in the core. What should I do to protect the top sides of my ski?
2. Crack in tail of ski: The back of my ski got a big chip in it and part of the base started peeling off. In order to stop it from peeling more off I cut off the piece that was sticking up. I still have that piece and I'm wondering what I should do to protect it. I imagine I will just epoxy it.
3. Missing edge: I was sliding a culvert and got stuck the last time I was skiing and it ripped a big chunk of edge out of my ski. This is my biggest concern because I am worried that it will keep exposing my base and getting into the core of the ski. I found the edge that got ripped out but I don't know if I should try to get it back in.
Can I fix all of these my self or should I go to a shop?
