Default Bindings pulled out of my Burton board!

I was just getting off the lift, pushed my way over to the run, went to sit down, and my binding ripped out of my board! Its a Burton Twin board and Drake DTM bindings... The worst part is that the screws seem to be fine, and the threads in the board are what took the punishment. On top of that, there are cracks around the holes. Board never been in the park, it was one of my first times snowboarding.

Anyone else have this problem? I have my reciepts and original packaging, and purchased it all about 6 months ago... What are my chances of a replacement?

Joe

Chances are pretty high for a warranty replacement. Make a call immediately

This type of stuff can happen...

Should I be going to the place I purchased it from or Burton directly?

It is the green model, but I purchased it new at Boardsports in Toronto brand new in August.

What probably happened was your bindings were loose enough they weren't threaded all the way got torqued just enough to rip out. The W48 should cover it just kiss ass tell them you bleed Burton and want to have Shaun Whites babies and Jake Burton invented snowboarding and all companies ripped it off and they'll take care of you.

This.

Then sell the brand new warranty replacement on CL and buy a real board!
