How to convert K-Style gutter (surface) to sheet metal

Hi folks. Hoping to learn something from you all.

I've been asked bby my boss to make a simple K-style gutter (radius gutter) into a sheet metal layout with bend information. Creating the profile was  easy. Extending it as a surface was even easier. Converting it to sheet metal failed.


I understand the error, but I obviously have so much to learn.. 


Error: "Cannot be a bend edge as there is a face for this edge which is non planar.. 


Ok, so, if you cant' have bends across non planar faces, how in the heck do you tell Solidworks "It's ok, we do it all the time in the real world!"


I would really appreciate some guidance here
