Got my Bataleon Evil Twin - is it flawed?
 
Hi Guys.

Just wondering if the flaw pictured is worth worrying about. It's a brand new board.

Thanks!

Not to a newbie. Is this enough damage to go ballistic on the board shop or do I just get it filled or wax it?

Thanks

lets put it this way if you bought a new car and it had a rock chip in the paint would you not complain about it? its not a huge deal but a new board should not have a pock mark like that in it.

FYI dont worry about douche 2 his posts are almost as worthless as mine.

Hey Dawg Catcher!

Thanks for the reply. I sent off an email asking the shop about the crater and we'll see what comes of it. I would hate to go through the hassle of returning it as I am presently boardless - except for a burton love with a nekkid chick on it which haven't got the balls to ride.

Seems like a big flaw when the stickers on the board crow about the quality control. I'm sure I'll ding it enough the first time I ride it though...

Thanks again!

Honestly it looks like a flaw in manufacturing, almost like the base material didnt fill in properly.
More than likely some douch at the shipping office jammed something through the box it came in.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!! No I just thought it was a cool piece of kitsch and gear rolled into one. I got it for just over $220 new which is like getting a guitar pedal so not a huge deal. This snowboarding thing is much cheaper than playing and collecting guitars/amps/pedals.

And the love boards are much tamer than the sims boards with the pornstars from years past. Those have gotten crazy prices on ebay...

I have to stop buying boards...

Could be. Just surprising the shop would send it out like that without shaving some $$ as they would have to figure I would squawk about it.

Anyhow thanks!

Since it's supposed to be brand new, I'd be very pissed. I'd be emailing or calling the retailer.
