Unhappy Wooden core split in a brand new Ride Wild Life.

I'm completely new here, and, as a matter of fact, I just registered to ask you guys a question that I couldn't find an answer to elsewhere. Recently I bought a 2013/14 Ride Wild Life [my first real upgrade from the pretty horrid Lamar that started showing some real wear after a week in Cortina last year] and I made a stupid mistake of not examining it properly before buying it. It looked fine. Two days ago, however, I just happened to hold it against a lamp [by accident, really, not that I was looking for defects or anything], and I saw that the wooden core inside is split right at the nose. The crack is about 10 centimeters long. That got me worried. Should I contact the shop and have the board replaced, or is it just a "trademark feature" of Ride snowboards? I'm not really sure if I should worry about it or not.
Anyway, thanks for any information that any of you might provide
