I'm not some dumb kid. I have been riding for 17 years and this has never happened. Who else has had this happen? Is it a defect or am I screwed?

"I broke my board."

Yeah, you did. It didn't break itself.

Doesn't matter what anyone on here thinks, if it's under warranty send it in. It matters what the company thinks. If not under warranty, buy a new board, doesn't look ride able.

If I was you I'd go back and see if that fat kid you ran over is ok.

I hope you don't ride like you put on stickers.

Anyway, my initial thought was that you probably hit something. But, while the topsheet is pretty beat up, that base looks clean.

you didn't hit something. you either tailblocked it or landed heavy on the tail and snapped it.

it is physically impossible for that damage to happen 'just riding along'. it isn't a defect - its damage caused by the way you rode it.

If you heard a "pop", are you sure you didn't hit some big-ass exposed area (rock)? Did you see the exact terrain on which it happened?

To me, it sounds like you nailed some big rock and just didn't see it.

if you hit a rock and it did that to your board you'd know it.

^This, if you hit a big rock the base would likely be tore up. I've done the same thing, it happens, hitting a windlip, ollies. btw what's your weight and the weight range for the board.
