Weak Boards

Over the past several years, I had a tough time finding time to skate. I had an Alien Pappalardo board that I got off ebay back in 2004 and I rode that until this summer. When I was driving back from Mexico through the States, I picked up a new Habitat deck and set up some new 53mm Guy Mariano soccer wheels that I had laying around since 2001. First session... cracked it. 360 flip on flat. Second session... cracked even more. 360 flip on flat. Definitely not happy. One Alien/Habitat board lasts 4 years. Another barely makes it past 2 sessions. It's gotta be one of my biggest pet peeves. Set up a brand spankin' new deck only to have it crack or break after a day.
