Exclamation is my board cracked?? Need help

hey guys,
recently i bought my first nice board, a burton process.. today when i took the bindings off i notices this crack, scratch, on my board right next to ICS.. the thing is that i only used this board 3 times and it was at a "hill" small resort. i dont do tricks that much, some jumps but mostly butters.
i bought this board from my LBS a month ago. so before i go there i just want to know if this is a "crack" if its bad and if its covered by the burton warranty program.
i hope you guys can help me because im really mad right now. i love this board and i hope its nothing major. if it is i hope its covered
thank you


Here's a flickr account with pictures of the crack

If thats a scratch don't worry about it. If it is a crack that is not normal and not caused by something you did riding. Warranty.

Looks like some form of superficial hair line crack to me. Can you take another photo of it with the rubber ics widget moved out of the road? I would like to see if the cracks start from the corners of the ics slot.

looks to me like it cracked but the vinyl layer didnt rip instead it streched cuasing a "bubble" line in the graphic, i bet if you bend the board youll see the "bubble" along the crack go away and come back.

Nice. You have some minor stress cracks then. Put the board on your knee, with your knee under where the crack is and push on the top of the board. If the crack opens up when you press down on the board, take it in to get checked and possibly warrantied. If it doesn't open up, put some gorilla glue/Crazy Glue/Loctite 406 over the crack to seal it and go ride.
