Yep. It happened to our two pair also. I had bought them at a year end clearance, so figured not able to return them. I think epoxy is best and keeping them. It is an awesome ski for the gals. However, if you paid full price you may want to return them to see how they'll take care of you. Nonetheless, it seems to be a characteristic of their lower cost kids version.
