Delaminted LF Galaxy Foil Board

Postby skideeppow » Wed Nov 21, 2018 6:07 pm

So, United did a number on my board on my way down to Mex. I had pool noodles on the edges but it did not help.

Any suggestions on how to seal this small delam up?

Thanks.

I had the same thing happen on my LF fish foil, an earlier model. This happened over the winter while in storage in my garage. The board had only been used lightly a few times and was not abused in any manner. No scratches, dings or impacts.
The board started to split along the seam. Either a poor seam bond or the seam was trimmed to close and opened up over time. My local dealer who is excellent was able to replace with a new model at no cost. We were all in agreement this most likely was a manufacturing defect.
Kudos to both the dealer (Mackite)and Liquid Force for backing up their product. They will have my continued business. :D :cheers:

I would not be so sure it was from airline unless you have clear evidence of mishandling. I looks like you packaged well enough. Try contacting your dealer and see if they are able to help.
