Is it a normal wear and tear, or I'd better call the dealer while it is under a warranty? I bought it brand new about 10 months ago.

put in sun with some soppy water on top. If cracks are thru top, then you will get bubbles.
Warranty enquiry regardless?

Very clever idea, thanks, but it might take a while before we get any sunny days here in Tassie I guess, better call the dealer

Is that the front of the board and have you hit it on four different occasions with your mast? I would worry more if they were caused by general stress on the board and not from impact.

have you tried sucking on the cracks to see if water or air comes out ?

No, it's definitely not from impact. There are a few scratches around the nose from the mast, bit this is a bit closer to the middle of the board.

Well, it didn't sound very exciting, but still I've just tried. It doesn't look like it does, at least not easily

Looks like classic mast hits to the rail. Put your mast base in the board then put the bottom half of your mast on the base, bend the mast over and I reckon it will line up with those cracks and the pattern they have formed.

F,km , they just don't understand to the kissing of the board , and I also thought of the crack , mast ,angle ,whoopsy. thing . If it's not leaking , and it doesn't look like it is , consider it as awesome spiritual love taps that money can't buy. Be proud of those marks of awesomeness
