Default Holes in base, what to do?

Lo all,
New to the forum.

I brought this second-hand 2006 Nitro Magnum, but it's got 4 holes, little dents in the base, right where the screws for the bindings are. I can definitely feel them when I got over it with my hand.
My guess is that the previous owner turned on the binding screws to tight.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

How does this happen and how to prevent it?
Is this serious? Will it effect the performance of the board?
Can I repair it? Or should I just put wax over it and get the excessive wax out with a scrubby pad?

Thnx all!

I think those are from waxing the board with the bindings still on tight.

Just leave it. It won't make a noticeable difference, all you should do is wax it and you're fine.

Actually looks like a T.Bolt or insert replacements. Wax and ride.
