They might, the you have to talk to the about it. The only thing that might hurt you is that it's a 08. I miss that board!! The best shape ever!! I wish I still had one. I like the new one, but the 08-10 was awesome!

brichter14 07-25-2012 9:09 PM

Ya its been a good board...never expected it to snap in half...

wakebordr11 07-25-2012 11:15 PM

It's hard for me to tell, but are there slider marks on the bottom? If there are, I'd.clean them off, and delete these pictures if you want any chance...

bigpapaf1f 07-26-2012 12:17 AM

Yeah over time they will snap. All boards will if you are riding hard and doing stuff in to the flats. Boards get soft after awhile the core gets weak and they will lose pop. It's hard to tell till you have broke a few and get on brand new boards that are the same shape. After awhile you can tell when they getting soft and about to go. When I was going to the flats a lot I could call with in a set or two before they would snap. Hope it all works out for ya

by posting this in here, were you hoping to put cwb on the spot so that they replace your board? that board's over 4yrs old. what do you expect them to do?

JoLo_Si 07-26-2012 5:27 AM

It's just time for a new one, I think 4 years of use is a good run for any board.

Bummer on the board but I would say that you got your moneys worth.

jaybee 07-26-2012 10:03 AM

You can find used boards or even new blem or closeout boards for pretty cheap.

Sp8race1010 07-26-2012 11:04 AM

I ordered me a board last night from these folks. http://www.evo.com/outlet-shop/wake.aspx I hope this helps. Had some good prices I thought. Good luck with a new find.

But thats bc it appears that you ride behind a super air nautique and we all know you get booted higher off the wake behind nautiques ;)

I wish I went big enough to be breaking boards....hahaha. Guess I'll have to settle for my one trick (Tantrum) W2W at 70'!

jarrod 07-26-2012 2:29 PM

board companies are more likely to hook you up when you don't post broken product for the world to see.

breakz77 07-26-2012 4:20 PM

First off sorry you broke your board


On another note people wonder why our sport struggles.
I don't understand why people think they can have boards for years and companies should replace them. If you bought a tv 4 years ago and tried to have Sony replace it....they would laugh at you.

I'm done :)

I heard from a little birdy that CWB hooked it up in this situation. Great company fwiw

brichter14 07-26-2012 9:33 PM

As it turns out Cwb is going to replace the board because at the time when i purchased the board they had a full two year warranty. I bought the board in early 2010 and it had obviously been sitting on the shelves a while if its the 08 model. I thought it was an 09 when i bought it. Anyways this isnt the first time cwb has taken good care of me. They are a great company that stands next to their products and that is why i have always and will always ride cwb.

Andrew14 07-27-2012 8:12 AM

Wow, pretty impressive that CWB hooked you up with a new board - says a lot about them as a company. My neighbor had an older CWB Transend that was starting to delaminate. He called CWB and they sent him a brand new board (2012 board) no questions asked and he didn't even have to send the old one back.

jake23l 07-27-2012 9:10 AM

Good job taking advantage of a good company. If this happened the first time you were out on the board, sure get in touch with CWB (PRIVATELY) and let them know what happened. 2 years later with a 4 year old board that you probably got a huge discount on, give me a break dude.

Props to CWB for sure, that's crazy.

wakebordr11 07-27-2012 9:45 AM

Taking advantage of a good company? This is called customer service Jake. They did based on his legit receipt of purchase and the fact that they warranty based on that and that when it was purchased the warranty was 2 years from the date of purchase.

07LSV 07-27-2012 9:54 AM

Jake - shut up, you're a tool. Technically the board was still under the 2 year warranty. Learn to read before using your fingers.

jake23l 07-27-2012 11:17 AM

Warranties cover manufacturer's defects, kind of hard to say that was the case. It's awesome that CWB took care of it and it says a lot about the company.

brichter14 07-27-2012 2:22 PM

Ya I think this is a perfect example of a company standing behind their product. I think that if anybody is looking at purchasing some new wakeboarding gear they should look at CWB because their products rock, and their customer service is hands down the best around.
