Question K2 Warranty Claim?

I bought a Slayblade last year and the warranty is just about up and I noticed that the topsheet is cracking around the edges of the harshmello pads. About half of the 16 pads have cracks around them.

It's really not that bad (yet). My only concern would be that the cracks would worsen and eventually the parts of the topsheet covering the pads would come off, potentially leading to loss/damage of harshmello.

So I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or knows whether this might be covered by the warranty? I already asked the local board shop where I bought it. All they would say is that they would just have to send it to K2.

Here are a few pics, the cracks are circled in red:

It's a stress crack on the harshmellow due to being left out like over night and getting hard. Seen it before shouldn't be a problem warrantying it.

Thanks for the replies. Anyone else have any input?

If I send it in, I'll be without it for a month or more (according to the shop) and back to riding my late '90s Fatbob.

Also, I'm not sure how warranties work. Is there any chance that I won't be able to get the exact model and size that I want?

Just ride it the rest of the season it's not hurting anything.

That's what I'm most inclined to do, however I also see an opportunity to perhaps solve the one issue I have with the board...pop.

I'm 5'11, 170-180lbs, size 11 boot, stance at 22" & +18/-12 and the board is a 159W.

Most of the time I like the size for stability when hard charging (both on and off piste), for sketchy landings, for float in pow, and I never have to worry about toe/heel drag.

But I wonder if I could still have all of that in a 158 or 156 regular (159 is the smallest wide) while also requiring less energy to load up a good ollie to launch off rollers? Also the 2012 Slayblade added an ollie bar.
