great stuff whereabouts in san diego are you surfing? there were some nice sets piling in in OB apart from that freak set that pummeled everyone in the line up
As for the ding id get that repaired chop chop. Its a minor ding just get yourself some suncure and do it yourself.
Ps how did the nose chip? did you ride it onto sand if so i would avoid this. Those rougue stones can really wreck the nose.
