Post a pic, but usually some clear epoxy can take care of it. Inland Surfer sells repair kits with color match for their boards.

If you cut out a hole in some tissue paper that is just larger than the damage, you can tape that to the board then apply a small blob of epoxy and use a flexible scraper of some sort (like an old credit card) to smooth out the epoxy. Then, remove the paper which has caught the excess you scraped off. You can then lightly sand and even wetsand it to blend it as best possible into the lines of the board. Use ultra fine sandpaper when you get to the final, detailed wetsanding.

Wax paper works well for this kind of thing too. You can buy a clear 2 part epoxy at Wally's.

I bet the wax paper would work better and, I think, that is what I meant to type. Good catch there kane!
