I got a really good deal on a 09 blemish board a few weeks ago under the impression that blemish boards had cosmetic issues (messed up graphics, perhaps a scratch).
When I received the board the thing that struck me as being messed up with it is the edges where the top and bottom layers meet didnt look right. In a few spots there were very very small gaps exposing what I suppose was the core of the board. I thought to myself that this issue seems to be a little more than cosmetic, but figured I would try it out in hopes that it would be ok and not cause any further problems.
I've been out 3 times in the past 2 weeks (just behind a boat). Good news is I went wake to wake for the first time yesterday. Bad news is I noticed some cracks starting to spread inward on the upper layer of the board.
Do you guys think the issue with this board would be considered more than a cosmetic issue? Is this worthy of contacting the store/manufacturer about?
Any feedback would be appreciated...
