Crack on board edge: manufacturing failure?(photo)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, probably I hit a rock and now there is a crack/crevice on the edge in the middle of the board( not at the nose nor the tail). But arent edges supposed to be ductile, so that even if I hit a rock, the edge should protrude out instead of cracking?

That looks like less of a crack and more just a spot where the edges were joined in the production process. Are there any more like that on your board?

oh god not again. its the joint where both ends of the edge meet.:blink:

To be honest I've never seen a join on the side of the board, always at the centre of the tip/tail. If there aren't any other joins on the board then obviously that's what this is, however if you've got a join somewhere else then that looks like a crack to me.

the joint on my Salomon Villain is on the side a bit in front of the contact point on the nose.

That's where the edges meet. Nothing to be concerned about -- go ride!

i'm sure that this is not a joint, as it hadn't been there until a week ago.

I do have two other "cracks", which i know they are joints, on each side at the tail tip.

thats weird having more than one joint. maybe this is a crack.
the only time I can think of would cause such crack is over flexing the board so the metal is pulled apart.
