Bummer.

Hoping mine is en-route to a second life. Properly glued.

Slightly off topic but I have owned and used 3 Custom/CBL boards and have not had any issues. I could see however that if you damaged the rails or top/bottom then yes water will possibly start reacting with the timber core, just like every other kiteboard and surfboard. If you do smack them around then you will need to repair i guess. I have a fly door and i breached the bottom of the board (I think just resting on a concrete surface time and time again) so I just put a few brushes of clear nail polish on it. Does the trick.

Absolutely....if there was damage. It's one of the disadvantages of timber core.

The board builder who's repairing my board had a good look. No damage. He feels it was just a bad glue job, or MAYBE that the glass was too tightly stretched over the "wrinkle" that's moulded into the board and failed along that line. None of us are forensic glue scientists, but that's the feeling.

A little birdy told me that ever since Neil Pryde bought Cabrinha they've had quality issues.

Wow, really? When did Neil Pryde take on Cabrinha?

2000

The union substantially expanded the breadth of products and innovation well beyond a limited line of quality kiteboards. I have used Cabrinha for the last dozen years because they focus on quality and performance.
