I'm guessing you just got unlucky. I own a 2011 K2 Parkstar that's I've used for a little over a year and I use it everywhere. butters, rails, boxes, jumps, street, and a little bit of powder. I haven't been too careful with it on the hill and it's still in great condition. Just some minor scratching from normal riding and boxes and a few real small nicks in the top sheet that just come from normal wear. I would contact K2 and try to warranty the board. If you can't do that, you'll just have to epoxy it. But I wouldn't let this turn you away from K2 cuz they've been great for me.
