If doing it yourself I'd put in a small rod or metal to strengthen the stringer then suncure all around making sure its water tight.

Metal tipped surfboard....?
Here's a little known fact.... surfboards dont need to be pointy at the front.
Assuming the stringer hasnt sustained too much damage (doesnt look like it has) then I'd simply round that nose off with a sander, then patch up properly with a couple of layers of fibreglass cloth and some resin, and then sand down until its pretty. Easy.
Ive broken the nose of boards and done a nice rounded off nose a couple of times.
You can also tell your mates that you're riding a board a couple of inches shorter

If you were to insert a small, narrow metal rod (about the size of a matchstick) into the stringer about halfway up the length of the rod and then slide the nose over the remainder of the rod it would serve to give linear rigidity (which is what the stringer does)
