Core Compression - Should I be worried?

Hey all - just got a sweet deal on a '13 NS Proto CTX demo that's been ridden for most of the season. Given NS' awesome durability, the thing is still in pretty nice shape. Just a few ptex spots on the base and the edges are free of burrs. The only thing I'm a little hesitant about are two little indentation spots on the base that look like core compression. Each one is about 3-4cm across. I'd show photos but they're hard to see.

It shouldn't affect the overall ride of the board, but I'm wondering how they might affect longevity of the board? I ride mostly trees and groomers, some park but no jibbing whatsoever.

Thoughts?

It was dented on some of the soft woods in the core. Done it numerous times to NS decks it happens sometimes they live forever other times they die a slow painful death.

You sure it isnt a mark where the binding pulled up a "dent" in the base?
