Thanks guys! Abrasion and skratches will make no difference. The cracks will start to chipp off the top layer and water will start penetrating, I can see it coming. I have never flown the board, at least not above 3 meters high.

This board is supposed to be one of the toughest out there, It's ment to be ridden with boots, advertised to be used in wakeparks even on sliders!!!

Just as an update, Best USA has contacted me this morning and confirmed it's not due to overbending. They have seen the pictures now and asked me couple of details about the cracks.
I really belive they will respond. We all are humans, we are not perfect, we all make mistakes, that's why the good intention is so important. I thought I would be wrong and the board's nose was overbent, but they and you all confirmed it has not. I'll keep you updated. Thanks guys.

A pic of my board. The crack was smaller than now, and there are also others cracks sowing up every time I use the board.
