That sucks...but it IS part of snowboarding. Be thankful you don't get the eejit ski race kids who think it's ok to stab your equipment with their ski poles while they bad mouth snowboarding.
Ya know, if someone just learning runs into my stuff, I'm not going to get all bent out of shape. However, someone trying to jack my stuff up that I paid good money for? Oh no. As far as I'm concerned, that's grounds for an ass whuppin'!
