Topsheet damage from bindings

2023 Custom used with Burton Genesis and Cartel X reflex bindings. This is after ~15 days but tbh it already looked like this after day 2 or 3.

Is this normal? I've never seen another board wear this bad (or this fast). The top layer of the topsheet seems to have been completely worn away in the areas where the binding exerts force through the board.

Kind of annoying as I tend to move my stance around a bit for different riding but now will end up with footprint all up and down the board. I have already widened my stance by a half inch so the inside heel damage on both feet is exposed.

Is this just trash materials from Burton?

But all that effort for not damaging your top sheet from simply mounting bindings is not for everyone.

@Craig64 you got access to Burton via a Profrom and buy your gear at a steep steep discount?
