Salomon boards cracking alot?

Hi I'm new to the forums but like what I've read so far. I haven't seen this topic yet so here goes.

I've been riding since I was young and have tried quite a few snowboards, as of late I've become a big fan of Salomon snowboards for their overall control and grip at high speeds in all the mountain terrain I can find, groomers, powder, moguls etc.

The first board I bought from them was a Salomon Burner 2006, unfortunately I cracked the core within maybe 12-14 rides. Luckily it was under warranty and was replaced with the Burner 2007. This last week I cracked the core again w/ stress marks all around the inserts. I used to have a Ride Timeless and for the 6 some years I used it, these cracks never happened. The only thing about the Timeless was I never rode down moguls the way I do now (maybe large amounts of stress?)

I'm thinking about getting the Salomon sick stick to replace the Burner, but I just don't want it falling apart on me when the warranty expires. Has anyone else had similar problems with Salomon snowboards getting lots of stress fractures on the base and by the inserts or were my cases just freak accidents?
