Wangta Thanks guys - I'll take a look at the board tomorrow morning. I'm pretty sure it looks like it got hit with something (which it did). I got a really good deal on that board anyway (slackcountry), but I'm still pissed I cracked it.

I'm more mad at myself - I obviously could of done things differently to avoid the rock. I think I got a bit spooked when I looked over my left shoulder and suddenly saw this guy coming out of nowhere. I am typically fine on narrow trails, but this board is a bit longer than my usual, and I got a little uncomfortable with the narrowness of the trail and going two wide - I honestly have never had that happen before.

This is my first cracked board, but I feel horrible - I had only used it for a week. FAAACK.

OK, here's my experience: in the past decade I broke 3 snowboards. One was a clear defect, snapped the nose clean off. The other split during a simple spine jump, looked like that guy's only went 15" in. I don't know how or why it happened but it shouldn't have, there was a bit of ice on the landing though. The third one, a Jones, I wrecked running into a tree.

The first two were replaced under warranty. Jones wasn't. Still, I called them all in. Now, it is of course a matter of personal preference but I don't care how I might be looked at or what I'm told to "go eat". My ego doesn't get bruised either way and looking like a fool beats shelling out few hundred bucks for a new board any day.

Like I said, I'd try it. No harm in asking.

Gdog42 Where did you buy it? If you bought it form dogfunk.com or backcountry.com, they have a lifetime return policy that allows you to return the item if you're not satisfied. If you bought it online, check the website's return policy and try to return it.
Sorry about your board. Hope you get it sorted soon.

killclimbz So Ale damaged a splitboard similar to that a few years ago. He went to the shop and the asked them what they could do. The repair guy smiled and said he had just the thing to fix it up. Went into the back, came back with a beer, handed it to Ale and said "Sorry man you're board is done".

Pretty much the same here. Ouch. I would contact the manufacturer. Most do understand what this means and have some empathy for their customers. They may just hook you up with a deal on a new deck. Which is about the best you can hope for in this situation.
