There are a number of riders here on the forum that ride hard and take full responsibility for what might happen.
Now if only we could get the " I'm not responsible for anything crowd" to do the same.............

thanks, i definately plan on riding varied terrain... I used to be pretty good back country and all mountain, but im mostlikely very rusty .
you have any suggestions on boards you think would suit me?

So I'd recommend upping your skills to ride varied terrain and conditions will be more helpful...especially for an intermediate rider...take some lessons, demos and some tours.
Bowls and bc with 24+" fresh...big pow specific cruiser
Bombing groomed...stiffy cambered
Trees...agile tree board

Sorry for the mini off topic rant, but I know I'll have to explain this warranty to people all next year.

Get some riding experience, avy education and proper gear.... Then go back country.

There were a lot of jones riders on the Freeride tour that I talked to this year hating on their sponsors boards... They apparently break easily, of course these guys are doing things you wouldn't imagine..... My son and his coach could have made it through the whole fwt season on their single smokin boards. Beat them up but never broken. Neversummer is another great company that makes super durable boards.
Smokin has been around for a while, I have ridden their stuff for 6-7 years now...
