Default Burton Blunt = CrAp !!!!

OK this is brand new, about 10x's out this year. He is a beginner park rider and the park stuff he hits is limited and was just recently put out on the slopes. SO park stuff maybe 3 or 4 times.

I can't believe all the damage to this board. PIC #1 is by his heel cup and had a huge peel back, I had to trim off. He doesn't ride anywhere my other boy and I don't ride. Our boards are not nearly this beat up and we all crash about the same





Is this kinda damage normal for a Burton??? My Lib and the other boys Ride are not even close to this.

i don't know anything about burton boards (never owned one), but I do know that damage could happen to any board if you run into things (other boards, rocks, branches, etc)...even in one crowded day. Beginners are just as likely, if not more, to tear up their boards this way as anyone

Looks like it's just a little beat up cosmetically. Definitely nothing there that I'd consider "huge". Put a little epoxy on those chips so they don't spread and call it a day. Like you said, he's a beginner in the park. He's gonna beat shit up, including himself.

Looks like someone clanked it on a rack and bumped him in a lift line. Suck it up it's a snowboard.

Good idea on the fix. I know he's new, but we all ride similar and crash similar His board just seemed to take the brunt, it's still a good fit and fun board for him. Cosmetic are all your right just a little venting and disappointment.
