So a few weeks ago I purchased a 153 arbor westmark. Loved it! Was exactly what i was looking for in a board, a freestyle board more park oriented, easy to butter yet still poppy. Even though I only rode it a handful of times, it was awesome!
Then, after a gorgeous pow day at my local mtn, I came home to notice a huge gash in my base...as well as my sidecut.
Now, I've owned a few boards in the past, evo, ultrafear, horroscope, and even after years of riding and abuse, none have sustained such damage.
Yet in under 3 weeks, this is what I realized to be the fate of my new westmark.........
Wonder if it's a manufacturing flaw in the grip-tech? cuz honestly, i wasnt bombing trees or rocks or rusty nails hah. I would have noticed this, like how much force is needed to produce such a blasted edge?
Tomorrow, I'm contacting Arbor directly about warranty information. I went into with my original receipt to my local boardshop but all they could offer me was a box to send it back in (which helps).
Anyone have experience with this type of damage and warranty? This is awful.
