Snowboards aren't cars, they are made to get beat up. My board is covered in scratches, stress cracks and dents. Cover it with a sticker if it messes with your mind that much.

Quit being a pussy and slap a sticker over the scratch and ride it.

Stripped threads? Sounds like your wife bought you a factory reject, just does not seem possible a board would have been sold with stripe threads.

Yeah, hate to pile on but it'll get scratched. The first one will bother you most but by season end, if you ride hard, you'll have lots more to keep that one company.

The screw thread issue legitimately deserves your attention.

Take it as a reminder to not be "that guy" standing in front of the lift runout.

You tried different screws, but try screwing it with no binding at all? Most bindings barely let you start threading the hardware in because of the tight tolerances given the baseplate/disc thickness and the necessity to prevent bottoming out the hardware. If you aren't cranking down on the binding, it most likely won't mount. Try it with only the hardware. If it's galled, just take an M6 finishing tap (make sure it's not a drilling tap) and rethread them. If it's stripped, you could try a HeliCoil but I'd just warranty the board.

As for the scratches, treat them as a badge.

I had an arbor and loved the woodgrain... but man o man did it get scratched up quick. Just make sure it doesn't go to the wood or you might want something to glaze it.

Word of advice boards get scratched so get over it. If you care that much don't ride it. Start jibbing rocks with it and that will speed up the process works for me. You are living up to your username with this thread.

Maybe you are being a little melodramatic but i do feel your pain. I got a little pissed off on my first chair ride this year with my first brand new board when a skier raked a ski right down the nose of my board. it left a nice white scratch on the black topsheet. needless to say after about 10 trips out this year i have many more scratches from both riding and inconsiderate lift riders. I no longer give a shit because i think it adds character.
