That's funny. Just as I was reading this I thought, "my nitros never chipped and I beat the shit out of them"

bearju1ce I just ordered a sierrascope for $250, I hope the top sheet remains in tact but for the price I paid I don't think I will mind so much

But I just went down to Ace hardware and picked up a clear epoxy that bonds with pretty much anything including plastics. You want a clear drying one unless you don't mind having black blobs all over your stick. You could also get a marine style epoxy but I don't think my bottle is and it works just fine.

Just take a razor blade and cut off any loose top sheet that's peeling where you have damage, and fill with the epoxy. Make sure to let it dry for the recommended time on the bottle. Then bam your good to go
thanks man, i hate this happens to such a badass riding board! that why ive thought about grabbing a sierrascope FK while there on sale...

LTshredTN thanks for the input guys, i may try to get some pics of it here soon... it just bugs me that its happening after just 1/2 a season! its just noticable chunks thats down to the white of the board...i wonder if i emailed capita about it if it would be under warranty or not?

Just make sure to epoxy the tears so they don't rip even farther...

Top sheet tears happen though bud, its a bitch, but it happens... The thing that pisses me off the most is when punk kids or skiiers slam into the back of your board and shred it up.

But ya I I would just write it up as general wear and tear as your the first person I've heard a complaint from as far as the top sheet goes
what would be good to put on the places that its done chipped?

jimster716 My Ultrafear has been chipping and tearing at a far greater frequency than my NS SL-R and both were new before the start of the season. Actually, I don't have any chips/tears on my SL-R. Go figure...but it's only the top sheet and it's not a delamination so it doesn't bug me much.
