Default I broke my board

I did this not doing jumps, rails, running into trees, falling... I was going down a Super Bee trail at Copper and I heard a pop. I thought it was my binding but this is what is was.
Do you think it is covered under warranty? Or is it done.

I would go ahead and work on that story before you try to get that warrantied. No one would believe that it just broke like that with you simply riding along.

If it was just the the Lam on the topsheet and edge pushed up I would say defect, but it does look like you hit something. No need to work on a story, send it in, they will look and decide to warranty or not no matter what you tell them. Might as well give it a shot, doesn't look ride able.

I had my board break the exact same way popping 180 outta switch just a few weeks back. I contacted the place I bought it and I sent it in for warranty. Mine was brand new, first ride, first run.

I agree with all of the above and not to mention that it looks like an old ragged out board....

If I did something to my board I wouldn't be on here crying about it. (jump, jib, tree...) I'm not looking for free handouts. I would take ownership of my mishap had I done it on something other then just riding along.
I just want some feedback, tips and suggestions.
Here are some more pics.

You want to see if we'd buy your story, because that gives you confidence that you'll get it covered.

Pick a better line next time genius. One with less rocks.
