my new baby has been cracked. is it fixable? pics inside

Hey there experts.

so im a snowboarding nub and took a spill the other day onto the ice. Yes ice, the only powder at the hill was a fine dusting. so anyway true to my occasionally bad luck this crack has appeared

Is there anyway that this is fixable, or should i even worry about it since it does not appear to be through the topsheet. However, it did bend my board a little bit and a corner of the lettering on the bottom is protruding about a quarter centimeter.

help?

Does the board actually have an angle in it now? That pic looks like it's "folded".

I think you broke the board.

My dad would tell you this.

"That board is about as straight as my dick"

Looks pretty broken to me.

Might as well try to see if the warranty would be covered.

Bummer dude. Looks like you're going to need to buy another board. ...or pick up another hobby.

I don't think they'll warranty it. That's not a manufacturer defect. If it's your park board, just ride it until it dies. It's already got rocker in the tips so you shouldn't notice it that much.
