Looks like the plug of epoxy where the wrap around edge meets together. Doesn't seem major

If that's the joint there it will probably be warrantied, call NS before getting to worked up.

If either of those pieces catch on something hard your whole edge could rip out. That looks like something NS warranty would cover.

look closely...looks like a small crack to the upper right on the deck too...

not really looking to have to fix a +$500 board after one ride.

The board is no longer brand new. It's used. Unless there is some crazy damage that can't be seen in the picture I'd ride it another hundred days and toss it in my used board pile at the end of it....

Isn't this just where the full wrap ends meet? My proto has this also and I've never thought this would be a problem
