Default Just got a Bataleon Omni :) Yay Santa! But it has a few base gouges. :(

Santa dropped this off early:





But, I noticed several small base gouges like this:



I can fit my fingernail in these scratches which are about 1.5cm (0.6in) long. Are they normal for a brand new board?

Now if Santa will deliver some snow...

Where'd you buy it from?! I would say that can be p-texed easy, but whoever you bought it from needs an earful and to send you a new board!

Yeah if it's new it shouldn't have those gouges in it.

I've had mine for 3-4mos and still haven't had a chance to use it yet. You might beat me to it lol. You need to contact them and get a new board.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. It's from evogear.com and I just got off the phone with them. They'll cross ship me a new one after I drop off my current board.

The board is in plastic but didn't come in a board sleeve which I thought was a little strange. It was also loose in the shipping box without any shipping paper or anything.

Hopefully second time's a charm otherwise I'll go somewhere else. I wasn't planning to ride it until a January storm anyway.
