How to repair chip in topsheet?

Somehow, one of my boards has a very small chip taken out of the nose. The wood is exposed so I'm worried about water getting in there and delaminating the board. What's the best way to repair this? I'm thinking, sand down the rough edges, put on a glob of two-part epoxy, wait for it to set and then sand it smooth.

Am I on the right track?

Based on recommendations from a friend who used to build sailboards, I used 24 hour epoxy. The key was to use heat to help draw the epoxy into the wood fibres and aid the setting. The 5 minute stuff sets too fast, apparently.

It turned out very nicely. Unfortunately, I did not add pigment. If I had, the work would've been invisible.
