Default Kemper Board Plastic Peeling

My brother got a used Kemper Eclipse Series board and the first time he used it this plastic top sheet started peeling off. Has anyone every seen this? The board is not delaminating or anything just this plastic sheet that looks like its protecting the graphics is peeling off. Should I try to glue it back down or just take it off? thanks for the help

OK so I did some more research and found that this is the top sheet peeling off. Sounds like a good idea to just epoxy it back down. If you guys have any suggestions that would be great.

Well it was his first time on the board we bought and I didn't want to stop him riding. So I definitely can't fix it? Could I make it useable for a few more trips? I guess I know to look for that now when buying used!

wow... how think is the 'coating?' by the looks of it, gotta agree with everyone here... top sheet... and its screwed.

congrats on being the worst i've seen though!

i'm guessing it doesn't get ridden much anyways. either stick it down somehow or remove it.. either way, you make the board that much crappier. either removing protection and strength or adding bulk and weight.

thats why i try to buy new... or at least close to new.

Its his first board and he's just learning so if I epoxy it down it should be good enough for him to ride untill we can get another board. Is there a reason this would happen? Like it got to hot when it was waxed at some point or something like that?
