My bases look like that on some of my colored bases. I'm assuming they are on the black based boards as well, just don't really notice.
I haven't had any problems, but I also don't have the level of concern you guys do because it isn't out of pocket for me :P
It's good you contacted NS. Honestly, they shouldn't care if you ride it for now. You contacted them already so you have your ass covered. Let them know you got it in time for a trip and you plan on riding it.
