    also I'd much rather skate a deck with a chip then waste about $10 on wood filler and new grip, it's not like a chip would even make a difference on an old deck anyway

    Chips dont really affect ****. That one would only affect your tricks(maybe) if said trick was a forward flip.

    like proper life ruining ocd, or are you just a bit fussy...

    like the people who say they're bi-polar because sometimes they're happy and sometimes they're sad.

    I have a picture tutorial up on my site if you're interested. http://www.brokeskate.com/2012/03/ho...oard-deck.html

    I haven't watched the video but I'm sure mine's the same process. Using filler on a chip is really all about restoring the proper board feel for me. I can really tell when I'm missing some of my tail.

    I do that once in awhile using the same brand wood fill. It isn't really designed for high impact areas. It's more suitable for patching stuff you look at. Drop that deck on the nose right where the chip is and a big chunk of the dried putty will blow out again. But, like I said, I've filled in missing chunks like that before. I've also trimmed a half inch off the end of the nose or tail with a band saw or coping saw.

    Get to the doctor.

    I hate how some people can be slightly anal retentive and think they instantly have OCD... but I guess that was the gist of DBS's post. Ha

    I agree. I think it's pretty sad that the chip is bothering him that much that he actually took his grip tape off and applied a new sheet after he used the wood filler. Haha. I'm getting the impression he really wanted to make a youtube video that was skateboard related and no one else has made yet just to get views. Cuz seriously, fixing a chip on your board and regripping is going a bit too far. Just ****ing skate the thing with the chip on it!
