Default Why am I so paranoid to flex test my board?!

I have an Omatic Wigglestick 2010 park board. Its on the stiffer side and it creaks when I flex it. Anyone else feel like their board's gonna crack?

I just built 5 boards, the first time you give them a real good flex they creak. After that they shut up.

Last time I tried to flex it hard and it made a loud crack noise? Is it just breaking in?

I figure its just the epoxy making noise the first time it gets flexed as it really doesnt like to flex.

It's your fiber glass and epoxy breaking in. Straddle that fucker and bounce up and down on it like you're a chick riding the bologna pony it won't be a problem after that.
