'13 Radar Strada Ski repair?

Hi guys,
My ski buddy had the handle hit the ski from a fall.
It has damaged the top clear coating, but not the carbon.

Advice on resin to use? I was going to use Epoxy, but I know it has more of a yellow tint to it.

Note, I'm in Perth, Australia and we purchased the ski online from the USA, so can't send it back to radar for a repair.

Cheers in advance.

    take it to a yacht builder or aerospace they should do carbon if they are any good.

    aren't you australians tough guys who kill crocs with a bowie knife and cook them up over a camp fire? thats what i see in the movies. put a logo sticker from your favorite ski boat maker like nautique or mastercraft over the top of the scratch and call it a day.

    Looks cosmetic to me! I second putting a sticker over it.

    If you are really worried, epoxy/sand then sticker

    Just a flesh wound. Keep fighting.

    Repair with yellow epoxi.
    Best for the ski.
    No sticker.
    Looks more hardcore.

    i think the guy in that movie might have been a little older and maybe needed the extra help?

    Not sure of the movie, but he sounds like an imposter.

    use the 302 modified acrylate A+B (about 2$ online), then sand it. If you do it right you would not need to cover it with a sticker.

    You're probably just going to make it look worse by putting anything at all on it. It is a sheet of clear plastic with screening on the underside and basically nothing you put on it will make it look any better, except maybe a sticker.
