Default Bottom snowboard edge missing a piece/chipped?

I was looking at my snowboard today and looked at the bottom edge of the board. I noticed that the metal edge looked to be missing a piece? Or looks chipped? It's almost as if though the metal edge is not completely around the board and as if though there is a gap in the metal edge.

The thing is that I haven't even opened the shrink-wrap from this board yet. Only the bottom and the top of the board has the shrink-wrap exposed (I guess the store where I bought it from has the top and bottom exposed for some reason?). Bought it a month ago and haven't had a chance to ride it (broken hand )

Is this normal or a defect??

Sorry for the blurry pics. I only have a camera phone and it's the clearest I can get it.

perfectly normal. thats where the 2 ends of the medal edge meet. They meet at the nose or tail because those 2 areas dont come in direct contact with the snow. Usually they fill the gap with ptex or epoxy. If its not filled with anything then i would fill it if i were you.

Is there an issue if I don't fill it with anything and just ride it?

Jeez, I feel stupid now. As you can probably tell, I'm still a newb with snowboarding.

nope there wont be any issues. the only thing i could imagine happening is snagging your glove on it or something. All my boards came with that gap filled smooth with epoxy, and i just assume they did it for a reason

Thx for the reply.

Just wondering, do some boards come with it filled and others don't? Depends on the company?

Same exact socks. Just the shadow making one of the socks appear gray.
