Some boardmakers take greater care than others to seal it up. My '03 Canyons have the same thing. That's nothing unusual. It doesn't matter if it's on the tip of your board, how often do you carve using the tip of your board as a contact point? That's why they leave the gap at the tip and not along the side.
Look on your other boards, I'll bet you'll find gaps on some.
thats right. lots of boards have this. perfectly normal. nothing to worry about.
