Are the boards you mention above the same bio beans / balsalt surface?
I spoke with the jus at LT. They're going to replace my board because of the nose break/crease. I said I don't want another horse power (bio bean top sheet) as I don't trust their strength. So I'm getting a normal skunk ape (not the horse power).
They (LT) said they haven't heard or had any feedback that the top sheets are softer or more easily damaged than a normal board.
I guess if we don't bring it to their attention in numbers they'll not know. I'd suggest - even if you're not looking at a replacement - to contact them with your experience. Their customer service has been amaZing so I'm sure they'll listen to us
