doesnt look normal. seems like packing didnt handle it right and scratched it up.
I doubt its wax. you can take a finger nail and try if you can flatten it.
I dont think it will affect riding performance either, probably just an eye sore since its a brand new board but if will get scratched up later anyways.
its really your call. to me if its expensive highend board I would get another one but if its a entry level board I probably wouldnt bother.
