Just stop. Seriously stop. I can see the hamster in your brain is trying to run on the wheel but no. There is no fucking defect that's a straight impact. It split the seam of the core causing one side to go up and the other to go down. The force of it broke through the topsheet and the base. They'll take one look at that and just laugh.

The best thing to do is cut a V into the tip and seal it or put a pop rivet right after the end of that split so it stops it cold from getting longer. After that comes some serious work of ptexing the base, sealing the topsheet so it doesn't allow moisture in and in the end it's going to look ugly as fuck.

speedjason cut the back end off and seal it up and ride it as a directional.

Fewdfreak I dunno you could always epoxy it up and switch your bindings around and ride it backwards. Is the NAS a directional? Might not ride that different and you could get another season out of it. Only thing I could think of short of cutting or buying a new one...

cav0011 Smokin has a "bummer" replacement policy which is a special lower rate to replace your board no matter how it got damaged (within the warranty period)

Yes the board more than likely is toast. Now here is your saving grace if you're a DIYer you can salvage it. Get a jigsaw, router, and some sealant because you're giving your board its own unique nose shape. If you're not a DIYer I suggest just getting really drunk and crying.
Do any snowboard companies have crash replacement policies? I know Giro used to have it for helmets and some mountainbike companies do it for frames.
Otherwise, pretending to pass this as a warranty issue would be BS.

That doesn't seem to be the case based on those pictures unless the little scruffs and what appears to be natural wear is just the result of your crash (and considering it looks like you took a jigsaw to the nose of your board that's not too far fetched). So first option if it's new is to talk to the manufacturer/shop. If not, that board is pretty much toast.
