The board is a 120 cm Chopper, my son Tanner is a beginner, he weighs about 60 lbs.
my kids have the same board and it usually happens the same to them: it is a combination of extruded base (which retains wax worse) and the fact that, being beginners, they spend most of the time on an edge.

try waxing it first: if this does not solve the problem, you might want to try with a very fine glass-paper (grind it on some metal first, to smoth it a bit more) to remove the burnt part of the base; then polish and wax.

you can also try and use a cold-temp wax for the outer parts: it should last a bit more.

all in all, not a big problem, just be sure to wax as frequently as you can.
