I just bought a new M3 talon 07/08 board and took it for a ride this monday.
Last night I took a look if I had made any scratches on it and found none, as I expected since I don't do rails or anything like that or hit other riders, What I didn't expect was to find a very tiny gap between the base and the metal edge. The gap is not all around but it is in several parts around the edge. However I must admit tho, that since I bought it, about 3 weeks ago, it has been stored in the basement where is pretty warm, and left it there after a whole day of riding. I'm not sure it that change of temperature may have cause it of if it is a board defect.
thanks in advance
