Default Broken highback!

For fuck sakes... I could have squeezed in 2-3 more runs right at the end of the day yesterday, and getting of Goat's Eye Chair at Sunshine I snapped my highback...(Ride Beta) uggghhh... the shop I got it at is really good about that sort of thing, but it didn't do me any good yesterday... just venting... such a nice day ruined!

Yep, chair caught it. The one time I forgot to lower it getting on. Got a new one from Skaters here in town where I bought them, swapped it out NQA. That shop is really good with warranty shit. Good prices too!

Good to here it wasn't a material defect issue, would have happened to pretty much any highback in that situation. Was worried about my betas for a second. Glad to here you got it taken care of under warranty though
