Rome Garage Rocker Damage

Went riding for my second time last Friday with my 2012 Rome Garage Rocker and ended up damaging my board. Didn't do it in the park because it wasn't open, my friends on the lift didn't hit it, and I didn't hit anything with it. It is on my tail edge too. Just wondering what you guys think I should do besides contact warranty. Already emailed them and am waiting. I would really honestly like them to send me a new one, even though I know that's not happening. Normally I would be to worried about a little scratch, but it's right between the layers and is on the tail. I've seen way to many boards die from noses and tails getting hit and the same damage happening and then the layers split and come apart. Any suggestions? Great board, just kinda pissed about this. Bad glue? Something wrong in the press? I don't know.



No more shit photos. Sorry about that. This is why I am not exactly sure. It's more than a stupid aesthetic problem, but not quite a major Delam, if at all, to me.

Yea, it's really hard to see. Most camera have a minimum focusing distance of about a foot (if you get any closer, it can't focus on the object). Zooming doesn't help as the focusing distance increases pretty much the same as the zoom. It looks like you just scrapped your tail against something. I can't tell, but if all you see is the white layer... it is fine, it won't delam just from that. If you already see the two layer clearly peeling apart (like clearly doing this -----<) that is a manufacturing problem and you should send it in for warranty.

Alright thanks. What would be your suggestions if warranty can't help. Send it to a shop or just get out the glue and clamps.

Stop fucking dropping the board on the rack, stop letting people ping you in the lift line, stop doing taps off trees, stop riding your board if you don't want cosmetic chips. God your generation has some serious fucking issues. Just shut up and ride it already and stop being a pussy.

Again... I can't see the damage properly... but if it isn't delam-ing then it is just cosmetic (I have a bunch of those on my boards) and just ride.

If it IS delaming... then it's a production problem and so will be covered by warranty.
