Never Summer fixed it for me (out of warranty), and it didnt hold very long before it blew again. shes now wall art!!
yea when i busted my edge it was a loose screw on the box, not the board. NS did an awesome job at patching it up too and i really thought it was gonna be fine but as soon as i started hitting rails it was done for.

that's the main reason I don't hit boxes...I'd have to go up and inspect each one for protruding metal, first. hell, avoiding sharp rocks is bad enough

This thread makes me nervous. I've just started hitting jumps and other features in the park and boxes are probably my favorite. After doing boxes for a day on Saturday I got home and noticed some new gouges down my base. Shit! I recently P-texed a crap load of other gouges from all the ice at Winter Park last Spring.

Now I'm worried about this happening to my board. From now on, on my first lap, I'm just going to ride by any boxes I like the look of before hitting them the next lap, just to give them a quick check for loose nails or anything else sticking out. Last season I actually saw a loose nail sticking out of the top of a box, told the people working there about it, and stayed well away from it. They later came out and put up a post to block it.
