Yeah it's just chiping. For one that ski does not have a sidewall it's a cap ski. But it's a super price point ski with a foam core. I had some at the end of last season when my thalls died. I lost both tip edges. If you want to try to make them last then a shop can re glue an clamp them. But honestly they don't look that bad at all yet so just keep skiing them. They are a surprisingly fun ski so just enjoy them.
