evo should definitely be able to help him out. Thats madd unfortunate but its nice to see you look toward the bright side, better for it to happen now than early season than mid.

I have bigger things to worry about than a snowboard.
I called EVO as soon as I got home and the person I talked to was very cool about the whole situation.
My question is has anyone seen a board break in this manner before. I've landed heavy in the backseat on my gnu and its fine.
I was skeptical about buying the Rossi to begin with and it seems my intuition serves me right. But shit I only paid 210 for it.

well if they replace it with same board and you land a larger jump/trick and break it again possibly risking a bodily injury $210 is a rip off and $200 to me is still good money...
I would not want the same board, but that is me.

To your question I've never broken any equipment then again Im newer to the sport

Can't argue that. Doctor bills add up quick. And no I don't want another one. If they'll give me a credit I'd be willing to buy something else. Im just board of my gnu and wanted to try a newer camber/rocker profile. I was really digging it the first couple turns.

is it possible you got it this cheap because of a defect that was already known about?

I don't know if the camber/rocker profile is the same as the Rossignol Angus (before it got mange traction), but I still have a soft spot for that board. I especially think about it every time I hit ice. Definitely a fun board.

I regret selling every board that I've sold.

Maybe just switch modes? Xavier de Le Rue rides one & he's not bad

I got to demo a Jibsaw & I thought it was sweet.

Well, just like that EVO sent me an email today and a return shipping label. Rossi takes care of returns themselves so I return it to them. I haven't a clue what my options will be, if any. Gonna try to get this turd sent out asap. I will update this post for anyone who is curious. I have to say between the interaction yesterday and the quick return email I'm impressed so far with evos customer service.
