Wondering if there's something going on with these basalt boards.

EDIT- here's the thread. Post and pics are bottom of page. http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...wboards-8.html
That looks identical to what happened to both my boards?! I thought the basalt was supposed to have higher tensile strenght but both my breaks occurred from riding which I wouldn't expect the board to take any real damage from, i.e. no impact or nasty falls!

Wonder how many of these boards T.Rice goes through

Damn that's odd how it cracked like that.

FWIW Lib told me the basalt was supposed to be less prone to snapping.
