Hello guys, so I bought a new board and the guy said it only have some scratches while removing the wheels bevause I bought only the deck but actually it looks broken.
At the moment the guy gave me two options, Get full money back - 50€ He gives me 20€ back and I keep it like that.
I’m not experienced with skateboards and I would like to have your opinion about it. I can’t tell how deep the crack is, I tried putting some force and see if it would open a little more but it holds pretty good. Will I be OK with this OK? What if I install a metal plate under so it re-enforces it? I mean like an underpad raiser that would also prevent the nuts digging inside the board as it is a drop through mount.
Here some pictures:
It took a hit on the edge as you can see. Uploading…
The pads I mean something like this maybe larger under the board.
What do you guys think? Do I just send it back and look for a new one? It is 93cm with a W shape koston talisman deck
