Also, another random question about my board. I picked up a GNU Carbon Credit at the end of last season and noticed when I got back from the trip that there is a hump running tip to tail about where the back of my rear binding sits. Is this normal?

Thanks in advance.
If it looks dry, wax it. Probably just edge-burn, meaning edges are dry, like I said, wax it. Fine scratches? Bases are 'structured' meaning they have tiny grooves. Makes em faster.

The GNU? Photos to show what you are talking about would help (good, clear ones too)
