Mikey C, I find it hard to believe that your Phoenix just started to fall apart, because I have over 300 days on mine with no problems. Sounds like you might of hit something with the tips to cause it to crack or chip. You are lucky you weren't riding a board with a fully wrapped metal edge, because the impact could have easily pushed the edge into the tip ending your boards life. Lib Tech also has a great warrenty department. Send your board in. If it truely just fell apart they will send you a new one. The Phoenix uses the strongest top sheet available. It is to bad that someones edge scratched your art work. If you want more art produced by Jamie Lynn, my advice is that you buy another Phoenix and mount it to your wall, because it will be $1000's less than buying a painting from him. You can also put a sticker over your scratch since it is a snowboard we are talking about here.
