    Will chamfering void my warranty?

    I'm not too worried about quality as it seems R8s last quite a while, and in a year I'll probably get <10 days on em, but defects are possible.

    Okay so I was reading this and I'm wondering if I understand this correctly. So if you barely file the edge of the top sheet so its no longer flush with the sidewall will prevent chipping? You only want to take off just a tiny bit correct? Now this won't damage or allow water to get underneath right? Why isn't this done with skis or snowboards? Will it make your boards last longer or is it just for cosmetic reasons? I think I understand the concept I just wanted to clear some things up.

    I take off the thickness of the top sheet at a 45 degree angle so the sidewall takes the dings. As long as you do not start taking sidewall off, there is no risk of water getting underneath. The chamfering helps with the cosmetics unless the ding is large enough to expose the wood core. But at that point, the chamfering did not serve its intended purpose.

    I do this to all my sidewall constructed boards, and it seems to really help. It creates a more rounded edge which keeps it from catching ice, hard pack snow, or whatever. When you think about an arc's smoothness compared to a right angle, it makes sense. Doing a light filing or sanding will not expose enough to allow water in. I imagine some people are doing this with their skis and snowboards also. I think it's more of a cosmetic thing.

    Hey I'm new here and I can't figure out how to look at the pictures attached to the main post and I'd really like to know how. All that happens when I click on them is I get a new tab and a blank white screen. I tried with 3 browsers nothing worked. Help? Also the video doesn't work but thats a different problem.

    Would it be possible or desirable to include as a manufacturing / design change in the future (to put such a factory edge on the board)? I have done this to all my boards and it did seem to help (especially with beginning / first times out when more board banging happens).

    It is difficult for the manufacturer to put in the chamfer in any automated method since the accummulation of manufacturing tolerances are built up from the bottom of the skiboard to the top sheet. It would most likely also be a manual process for the manufacturer and it would therefore add a lot of cost.
