blew out tail.
 
So I was practicing flips and blew out the tail of my just fixed board again.

Anyone know of a board (brand?) that would not have this happen?

Mind you I flipped and landed DEAD on the tail edge, lots of pressure..

That can happen to any board, sorry bud.

That should be a warranty item by the looks of it though....

damage from landing dead on the tail won't likely be covered by warranty becuase it was your fault. It can happen to any board, but some may be able to handle a few more hits depending on build quality, no guarantees though.

Who has to know it was from landing on the tail

My Lib Tech board has no steel edge around the nose and tail so they're not going to have these problems. But I'm sure they can damage at the nose and tail too, but don't think it's going to happen as fast because is just a solid piece of material...

Sucks btw. I'd try to use warranty or customer service!

It won't happen on a Capita board.






































oh wait...

Crud.. and no I won't try to pull it off as a warranty issue, I already contacted Capita and told them that it was my fault and landed on my tail.

They offered to fix it if I shipped it out to them.

No matter what they do, it'll still split on flips :(

Better start getting them right lol.

This

Simple answer, any board you don't front flip wont have that happen. Front flips are generally a parlor trick, if you just find them fun as all hell to do then just don't throw them on anything too small to get all the way around and tuck that back leg.

K2 has a board out they claim is indestructible... I don't remember which, but you could look at that.

You lib tech will have way more nose and tail issues then any other board on the market. Not having a fully wrapped stick is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.... Wait till you accidentally run into something and the board splits in half, or someone bumps your board from behind in the lift line and splits it in half also. It will happen.

There are no boards more vulnerable to tip and tail damage then non fully wrapped ones as far as I know.
