The guy I bought it off had only taken it out like 5 times in super deep days.

I was wondering about any sort of warranty, but it's a 2010, so past the warranty period.

I've read a tonne before & after I purchased this thing, & from what I've read it's supposed to be stiff as fuck. Shouldn't stiff as fuck = strength?
Because honestly I don't think any of my other boards would have snapped that easy.

I'm only about 160-165lbs right now, I don't know what the weight range is for the 164 off the top of my head but I bet I didn't even fit in that weight class for that board?

I might try & get in touch with Ride, but even with my best sob story, I'm pretty sure they're gonna say "shitty for you"?

No offense, but it ain't funny & if anyone would have laughed or even made a smart ass comment yesterday. I would have broken their neck on the spot.
I'm not kiddin'. El snappo.

If I were you Id seriously bitch at Ride. Ask to speak with the top person available and acknowledge the fact its a 2010 etc, but then simply ask if he thinks its reasonable it should break like that. What did you actually do to make it snap BTW? I cant image snapping a board.

Whats kinda strange is there is a Cronic Taco place across from me and they a bran new Ride board cracked in half hanging on the way as a decoration.

I know it isnt funny...fook.

I gotta say.....Ride is made in China. I bought my GF a Ride board and noticed it said MIC on it...I sold it on CL the same day and ate the loss. My policy is that if there is an alternate I say Fuck made in China. Luckily with snowboards there are lots of other choices.
