Pffffft!
Anybody remember that's how normal sand only boards used to look pre-2000's. Standard sanded finish. Fiberglass all in your arms when you carried it. Colored boards always show the burns more and also have a tendency to crystallize if the paint is too thick. Super fast cure lots of catalyst spider cracks when you touched board w/fingernail. Reminds me of those days when HPSB were trying to be light and HP but forgot to be glassed and sanded tight.It was either sanded finish or sanded gloss. That's about the time when guys were rubbing corn oil, pledge, acrylic etc, on them just to cover up the burns.

Not a good look on the rack but Duffys right it probably is magic. Offer them a much larger discount just for giggles!

The fine sands you get today and even better ones were created on the North Shore in the 80's

HAHA good one GG! you're right again.
I remember seeing many very nicely glassed and sanded boards on my trips to the islands, to this day still.
From what I can remember, it took a while to see the same results on the mainland boards though.

How are the finished boards coming out in Florida? Seems the OP board in question is pretty bad.

And yes, the tolerance for burn thrus galore on a sanded finish board these days is very very low.
