convincing the parentals i need a new "stick" xD

i bought a board over them summer off ebay for 80 bucks. ive been using it a week and a half and it doesnt seem to be a very good board. it gets marked up very easily. its a 5150 and i have no idea how old it is. so i want to buy a new board, the problem is convincing my parents. how can i convince them that my board is not of very good qualtiy and that i should be allowed to buy a new one. any suggestions of what to say??
thanks (:

if you are using your own money, then i guess try to maybe say that's it's your money and this is what you really want to do with it.

Are you parents into any sports or hobbies? Relate it to something they can understand, using the equipment/tools for what they're into.

What you can do is sell your current board and so you can buy the new one. Your parents will have nothing to say then as you won't have "another" board lying around.

Just tell them you want to advance your skill in snowboarding, and you are very limited as to what you can do with your current board.

Also like m60g said, you can always break it lol. Just make sure it's a break that's not so huge they ask you how in the world that happened. Just gash the edge with something that should be enough, or take nails to the under and say you went over some rocks and now it's dead.
