Default is this normal?

just wondering if this is normal for a board that was just bought 1 year ago...

its a rome crail 159 think it has a 2 year warranty.

as u can see in the pictures it has some of the corner peeling off, theres even a chip pretty deep in the board..

ive only gone on this board three-4 times...

I cant tell too much from the pics but it looks pretty normal to me. You should see my board after a season. I got pieces hanging off. Too me it looks like you just nicked somethin a couple times. That or you hit boards/skiis with someone on the lift

yea it really just looks like little chips which is not a big deal at all. if the top sheet starts peeling off more exposing the inside you may need to epoxy it back down but it doenst look like youre at that point yet.

Hey hi2u,

That is damage, but it's not a defect. Unfortunately topsheets get whacked regularly and they all will chip or scrape. Much of this damage happens in the lift line from other people's edges, in the truck on the way up to the hill, and by jamming a board tail into the snow for an easy stay-put at lunch.

If you did end up sending it in to warranty I doubt you'll get it back by Thanksgiving.

My topsheet was peeling last season really bad. My board shop told me not to bring it in until I knew there was absolutely no chance I would ride another day till the following season. Handed it over to Mervin Mfg. 2nd week of May.. After some phone calls no one could tell me when I'd get my board back or if it was even covered until the 2nd week in September When I get a phone call that my new board was waiting for me at the shop. Took 4 months. But got this seasons upgrade for free

You shoulda thought of this last sping. Kinda risky to do it now. Also the warranty only covers defects. If theres evidence that it's damanged due to impact I don't think your warranty will do much.
