Default what happened to burton's quality control?

my custom and my bud's warranty board 2011 whammy bar. he had to send in his 09 custom vrocker for the same crack. i landed tail heavy once and my bud landed nose heavy from 25ft jumps.




meanwhile, my 2011 ride DH board that's "made in china", has survived near flat landings, tail heavy 35ft landings, 47 ft step down landings and still going strong, without a single crack. even my 09 burton fix 155 is going strong except for a few hairline top sheet cracks.

btw all the cracks shown in the pics began where the "pro-tip" meets the main deck. shown here. i guess it's a weak spot?

Most burton boards break in that same way (from experience and other people's posts).

Any boards going to break when you land that way. I can take a brand new board out of the wrapper and break it one run it's just physics it's not even a manufacturing defect thats your fault.

That's not right. I ride hard and land tail heavy all the time off 20+ footers and that has only happened to me once in my almost 20 years of jumping. And I ride boards that I'm way too heavy for. Looks like burton is right up there with the worst of them.

Oh please I break about 5 boards a year on average. I'm going to guess you just ended up landing backseat washing out and tomahawking down the landing your tail stuck in and the momentum of your body caused it to bend the wrong way and snap. Suck it up that's not a manufacturing defect that's a bunch of people riding like fuckwads that don't know how to land a jump and it broke.

You are wrong! I doubt a NS would break that way. And I'd like to think a Lib Tech wouldent (I havent heard of them breaking like that but they do delam for people) At any rate warranty should cover it in the first year for any respectable brand and NS would cover it for 3.
