Default Topsheet discoloration?!??

So I bought a NS Lotus this year and just started taking it out and noticed that the colour on the the topsheet is sort of "mixing" or "fading" (i dont really know what its called). At first it was just one little dot which didnt bother me, but now its happening near the edge on multiple spots of my board. Each spot in itself isn't too noticable but I am just wondering if this is something I should worry about. Will it continue to get worse? Could this mean something else is wrong with the board? Just a precautionary question! I've posted some pictures so please let me know!

i really have no idea how it happened. there are no cuts or damages to the edges anywhere near where its happened. i was just about to put it away and i noticed it. first time i went i saw a small one but it was so small it didnt bother me, but today again i saw it again in 2 more spots and more noticable. i guess i'll end up giving NS a call/email and see what they say.

Hard to tell from the pictures but it looks like your board might be partially delaminating along the edges. Should be covered under warranty if that's what it is.

i know the pictures kind of suck but it was the best i could do. that sounds like it could be right. to be honest it just looks like the colour is washing away. i emailed NS so hopefully theyll get back to me.

No just no don't throw this out there like you know anything about it. People clipped you it filled a bit of your edge off if you're worried it's not pretty anymore take a matching colored sharpie and go over it. Otherwise just ride the damn thing and not care.

I wonder sometimes what people would do if they had their boards as fucked up as mine are.... They would probably fucking commit suicide with the amount of bitching they do over a single little nick or scuff....

I'm not concerned at all about it looking "pretty". I didn't buy the board cause it was pretty, I bought it cause it was a great board. I just wanted to make sure because it almost looks like the colour is being washed away. It proceeded to happen in two more spots the second time I went out, so it's merely a question because I know people here know a lot more than I do.
