Cool I Broke My Board

Oh noooooooooooooo..









Kidding..but I was wondering what would happen if you broke your board practicing a tail block. The board is still under warranty of course.

Thank you, I was just messing around and i had to stop cause i thought it was gonna break. lol

Ask the dumb ass kid that tail blocked a board in store and snapped it how well his warranty went after we made him pay for it.

I think Smokin' is the only company that warranties stupidity by the owner through the bummer replacement thing they have.

Eh I've seen every company do stupidity replacement at some point. Thank god they're getting stricter about that. People should really read what is and isn't covered under warranty on that little card on the back it might blow their minds.
