    dude i have had that happen to 2 boards it seems impossible to repair i have tried everything i cut a 1ft x 1ft square into the deck and patched its that held up for a month,but since its right in the middle of the deck its never a permit fix, and if you let it got you end up with a super long crack and a waterlogged board go have it professional repaired im sure theres some trick to it cause it happens all the time or so it seems

    do you hop on your board really heavy? a new board should not have this problem that's for sure.

    yeah im planning on getting it professionally done. because i tried to do a quick patch myself with ding all quick stick that i had laying around but that didnt hold it and it got even bigger. im like 190 so i guess i get up pretty heavy, but theres no reason for it to split so easy. im guessing its weak glassing. and its not a wrv, its a channel islands fishcut.
