Some boardmakers take greater care than others to seal it up. My '03 Canyons have the same thing. That's nothing unusual. It doesn't matter if it's on the tip of your board, how often do you carve using the tip of your board as a contact point? That's why they leave the gap at the tip and not along the side.
Look on your other boards, I'll bet you'll find gaps on some.
thats right. lots of boards have this. perfectly normal. nothing to worry about.

chowman94 yea dude if the board material itself is still perfect, just missing some edge than its good to go. just make sure u dont get a bad crack there

MunkySpunk No problem. New board. I know exactly how you feel. My good boards are my babies.

3vod ^ Thats what I needed to hear.. thank you sir. it is on the tip.. right in the center, it looked like it came that way from factory, didn't look dented or knicked. you guys are a lot of help. thanks again.

3vod So..

There is a possibility that it could lead to problems.. I should probably just ask for a replacement?
