Default New board a little bit damage during shipping

Hi All,

I am a newbie-begineer to snowboarding, just few rides in past 2 years.
I order my board on petergleen.com, cause their burton process has really nice price.

The problem is when I got the board, it seems there is a little damage on the nose of the board.
I attach the picture, and my question is does everyone think this is a serious dent or its just a small damage, you will also have some after a few rides.

cause it seem I will have to pay the shipping for the return, I really dont wanna waste money and time shipping from NY to FL ....

Thanx for everyone's advise

It's definitely not worth returning over, maybe send them out an email and see if you can get a few bucks off... otherwise, you'll get that within the first hour of riding.

You'll get worse than that when your buddy throws his board on top of yours when loading the car

I agree with above, try and get some money back for it or something.

Oh for fucks sake 10 minutes in a lift line that thing will look more battered than Jena Jameson after Tito Ortiz raged some of his roids.

It's ok man to order something new, and want it to be new, even if it's going to get thrashed in 1 run.

Don't worry about it just go ride it. Take it over some rocks so that little bump will seem even smaller.
