Default uh oh......am i f*cked?

So i took my board out today just on a little hill since the mountains havent opened up yet. I did NOTHING even remotely stupid, just riding down the hill, walk back up etc etc




I get back home, look at the sidewall, and its cracked in like 20 different places D:

idk if you can see it that well in the picture, but basically its supposed to be smooth black and white lines like you see on the left side of the picture, but then theres maybe like 50 individual little cracks

Will this be covered by warranty? its a nitro t1, and its still under the two year waranty...or will I have to buy another one

it isnt scratches its a bunch of super deep cracks


also, is it dangerous to still ride like this, assuming I want to hit park?

if they're actual cracks, i'd say you are fucked and that you should check your warranty asap.

That's a warranty issue. Contact Nitro or the shop you picked it up from (hopefully it's local). The shop can contact Nitro and you should get a new board out of it.

aha!


So i called the shop I bought it from, and they said to bring it in and that I would get a 2010 brand new board to replace this one free of charge

Apparently, this happens ALOT with last years nitro's

Thanks guys

A good warranty will cover that. They don't cover damages that are the result of obvious abuse such at getting mad and snapping your board in half lol. This is a construction problem of the board so yea, get it warrantied. Another thing that a good warranty will do is get you the board back within two days of receiving it. So you are S.O.L. in that department. I wouldn't ride a board that is damaged like that.
