screw starboard, buy JP, F2 or Fanatic
The same thing happened too me, Starboard refused to do anything about it so I listed the board for sale on Ebay and showed close up photos of the blistered bottom. I believe over 300 people clicked on the ad and saw what crap they are selling
that was in 07, looks like they are still making crappy boards today.
until people start doing something about it and quit buying their boards they will continue to screw the little guy and I dont know about you but $1400 is a lot to pay for a board thats going to fall apart in less than a year
Screw you and your boards starboard!
