Has anyone an idea, how can they come? I canīt explain it to me. Has anyone similar problems with isonic?

from the photos its a little difficult to see the issue area. Since this however is a wood deck, its probably not unique to Isonic. Look at the other wood deck problem threads, may shine a little light.

Does the lighter area seem to go down to the actualy wood ? Put another way , is the top coat gone ?

This looks very much like an "issue" with the wood laminate layer . . . or more particularly what seals it . . . hate to say that it would be absorbtion of moisture that has contributed to this condition . . . but to a technical eye it is a "possibility' . . . ??? the "bleaching" (a combination of moisture and UV) is unusual and seems like it follows the grain (common to moisture issues) . . . and if it goes further "may" cause further issues . . . definitely keep an eye on it! . . . First thing I would do would be to talk to your shop!

New board? Old board?

Many thanks for all the advice. The board is only 4 months old and was used 3 weeks. I hope it is not a major problem. The importer will watch the board in the coming days. I love this board and would like to have fun with it for a long time. Best regards.

GFB sounds like you are on top of the issue. Hope it works out for YA .

for info

The importer has reviewed the board now. He said it is simply a normal wear of the top varnish. The importer guaranteed me, that the wood layer is fine. I hope the rest of the varnish does not look like this soon. This would be for me otherwise a k.o.-criterion for my next sale of a starboard. I really hate these spots.

best regards
