    Default Cracked new deck first kickflip :|

    I got my new setup from Skate Warehouse yesterday afternoon and was testing it out in my driveway for the first time 10 minutes ago, the first kickflip I do I crack/chip the tail on my new DGK deck :|

    I've put a bit of glue and clamped it, is there anything else I should do?

    The glue and clamps won't do anything.

    Keep it around as a flatground only board or skate it till it breaks.

    Depends on how big the chip is, pics or detailed explanation would help.
    Well if it's a chip and not a snap, than I'd say there's nothing much to worry about :L

    How did you chip your board on a flatground kickflip? do you flip them vertically?

    Its the bottom ply thats chipped, I could pull it off, its 2cm wide ~3cm long. It wasnt the greatest of kickflips haha, I landed with most of my weight on my back foot.

    There's not a lot you can do, just skate it.
    Kickflips and 360 flips are ****

    We were all off our faces on mushrooms when we recorded Plug In Baby... There was this big field next to the recording studio filled with them. So we ate them all. I don't know what we were doing, but we all ended up naked in a jacuzzi and I went deaf in one ear from falling asleep in the sauna... Matt Bellamy

    Nothing much you can do... Not many sites will refund an assembled complete, much less one that's been ridden. Just try to be more careful next time when you're throwing your weight around.

    Also, I see one mistake; ordering from Skate Warehouse instead of Renegades (What were you thinking? )

    Then don't post..

    JB weld or wood glue is preferable if you haven't already used one of the two.

    Why would someone that improperly landed a trick, and damaged a board expect to get a refund? Furthermore, why would anyone think to advise him to do so? I don't make eggs in the morning and then call up the store and say hey my eggs are cracked.... Depending on how poorly the landing was, its quite possible whatever brand he purchased he would have damaged. I tend to get a personal attachment to my material belongings, but sometimes you have to just inhale deeply and let it go. I wouldn't sweat it.

    Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
