Well, I called the shop and they already started dicking me around without even seeing the board. The traffic on the Don Valley was packed so I didnt bother wasting my time. I emailed Burton and let them know i was disappointed with this happening. The weather here is beautiful and I am stuck without a board to use because I dont want moisture getting in my board and having the core rot.

Hopefully Burton can do something for me here, I guess I will find out tomorrow.

I had this happen many years ago with a Burton second and it was covered under warranty with no questions asked. Then it happened again and again the shop replaced it with no questions asked. I don't know if Burton actually covered it but the shop gave me 2 new boards...second time around I didn't get the same model...they must have had a bad run or something...and again this was like 15 years ago so wouldn't affect your board at all...the point is make sure you buy from a good shop and they will cover you.

You prolly got a defective board that slipped past QA. This is a very very dangerous defect as you are lucky it happened at a lift rather than speeding down a slope. If anything happened to you while that binding ripped out, you could have easily gotten a lawyer and sued the crap out of Burton. Burton should not let boards that are known to have this defect circulate and in cases like these, there should be a recall. It could be that your board just slipped QA, which happens. Where are Burtons made these days anyways. Prolly China or something. Even if so, there's no excuse for allowing a board like that into the market.

Finally got around to shipping my board the other day, and just called Burton.

They said they are shipping me a new 2010 model, and that should be here before the end of the week!

Looks like Burton really came through on this one!

In all honesty, I've never liked Boardsports here in Toronto. Just a vibe I didn't really care much for, overpriced product, and for a retailer listed as carrying Never Summer, I've never seen one NS board there in the very few times I've been in. This just cements it.

+1

I dont understand that as well. When i called to inquire about NS boards, they gave me attitude and said they dont carry them. They should be removed off the NS retialers list.
