nose 1.jpgnose 2.jpgnose 3.jpgnose 4.jpgtail defects.jpgI ordered an Addvance to be air shipped. I was pretty excited considering it was the first new board I've ever bought. Kind of like buying a new car I guess. Well finally it arrived, the packaging looked pretty solid but low and behold when I had it unwrapped the nose of the board was dinged pretty solidly. Also a scratch in the deck towards the tail (not as concerned about this). I contacted the store I bought it from and they confirmed that they have insurance on all shipped boards but mentioned getting a credit from the insurance towards the ding repair, I have done some reading and it seems that the chances for a fix going sour are higher than I am comfortable with. This is especially frustrating considering I haven't even taken the board out. Should I just accept the ding fix credit or demand a new board if its possible? I am horrible at shit like ding repair and being a new board I don't trust myself to do a good job anyway. Also some of the glass looks weird, as if you can see the fibers and stuff though seemingly solidly glassed over and smooth just wondering if this was normal? If it surfs good I am happy, just kinda pissed because its my first new board ever. Also some weird flakes of glass around the leash plug, kind of looks unfinished compared to other new boards I've seen Any input?
