|CheeseForSteeze||They have white p-tex. They might have other color sticks but I haven't seen them so I would guess they aren't readily available. Either way, I don't mind my board being all mixed up in color.|

And also...A-Frame, season 2 (40 days total on the board) I have water infiltrating a small area the top sheet around the forward most set of screws, on the back foot section. The top is lifting a bit and it got much darker under. I'll fix it at the end of the season.

|Snowbeard||And what did they fill the gap with?|

Any "good" shop should be able to figure out real quickly if the board is edge high enough to warrant filled the gap just by handling it. You can check yourself with a true bar or some substitute instrument like a level or other precise straight edge (carpenter's square). Usually only happens if you ride your edges a lot. If your edges are always dry and free of wax, you might have a chance to be edge high.
The only way to know for sure though, is to measure.
I imagine if they stoneground the base, they'll probably fill in the gaps, too. A stonegrind is worthless if the end result isn't bringing the base back to a nice, flat surface.

The base isn't bad as far as getting core shot more than other bases but it definitely just dings up like crazy. You won't notice it until you go get a good base job and stonegrind done; it's like night and day afterwards. Mine was so pitted up with small gouges, it was edge high which they had to fill in to get it flush again but after the stonegrind it looked brand new and was even faster than my other out of the box Westmark 50.
If you ride more than 40 days a season, plan on getting at least one stonegrind done, especially if you abuse your board.

|Snowbeard||I am thinking that perhaps, I should have used a prep wax or renewal wax before I just threw the regular wax on it because it was dry when I got it. It may just need to really be saturated and put a base layer of wax on first. Also could be the crappy wax I am using, haha! Conditions have been slow overall on the east coast anyways, but it still rides like a dream.|
