Default Repainting a Starboard Isonic

My Isonic is all scratched up and I can't take it anymore!

I was adjusting my sail in the water before an amateur course race, holding my iSonic 133 with one foot with my other foot on the mast extension furiously trying to downhaul a 7.5 slalom sail with 5 minutes to go before the gun. Unfortunately the iSonic got caught under the dock I was sitting on and smashed into the aluminum beams underneath by repeated waves and chop. The board came out with long black marks all down the rail on both sides. Fortunately not cracks or gashes, I assume it's just scatches in the paint where the sharp edged beams exposed the carbon?

I want to know the best way to fix this. Is the paint gelcoat, or something else? Board: iSonic 133, technora, 2007 or 2008, can't remember.

Thank you.
