Good call I did, now that I reread it I'm not sure what I was thinking.

I honestly have no idea how it even rides. I might have done 1 carve on it, but I can't recall it. So I might not have even got a single carve on it.

As far fetched & bull shit as that sounds. (I would probably call bull shit if I heard this story) it's what happened. I ran into a member on this forum @ the bottom of the lift. We rode up 2 separate lifts all the way to the top.
He can confirm it. He's not a life long buddy either, I don't even know his real name. I'm sure we did a proper introduction, but I can't remember?

I couldn't stop talkin' about how I had been itchin' to take this thing out, then 30 seconds after my bindings were done up , I snapped it.

I then had a 2010 ft vertical drop to get down, in 2 ft of fresh.
I will say that if it wasn't for the slimewalls, I would have been riding those stupid fuckin' Dual snowboard coke trays down. That's the only thing holding this thing from becoming 2 pieces.

I'm in deadly shape right now, down to about 165lbs. With possibly the most defined 6 pack I've ever had in my life. ( & I'm pushin' 40)
I don't think I'm even in the weight category for a 164?
Someone of that weight shouldn't snap a deck that easy.

Had to sell the Hefe's, so I didn't even get to try those either

Bull shit, I tells ya.

Yep I do, found me a this years Slack in a 61 instead of a 64 for $325. Brand spankin' new, but I'm a little hesitant to say the least.

I don't like boards made out of Papier-mâché, so I might stay clear of the Rides?

I think Ride's construction is top-notch... but ya... if I got a defective board I'd be paranoid about it happening again too.

You got a defective board or you got sold a broken board of Craigslist (there is a risk buying of cg...) or you're not telling us the whole story

I have had three ride boards in the past and have only had one "break" on me due to my own actions and some really bad luck.

Try calling up ride and see if they will replace it. Honestly, I've never heard of a board snapping in the first 500 feet. Did you drop off a cliff? I am guessing the guy on craigs sold you a broken or damaged board.

Finally got around to taking some pics of the Snapcountry.

Pm sent.

The pic of the top sheet, there used to be the top of a beer can, medallion sort of thing there. It popped off when it broke.

It was pressed into the board, I don't know if that crushed the innards & made them weaker But it's right @ the spot of the break.

The base on this thing is so thin, I've never seen one this thin.
It's a c hair thicker, than a c hair.
