About a month ago I was free skiing and I internally broke, the outside laminate held together, my 2018 HO Syndicate VTX 66". I do not ski very aggressively, hit nothing, and cannot think of any other logical reason as to how I would be able to break a ski. It has been stored in a bag, inside for the entirety of its' life outside of being on the boat for skiing. I spoke to HO support regarding the matter and was basically told to get lost since it was past its' 1-year warranty. I was told by them to contact my dealer, but the ski was bought on a college ski team deal and I do not have access to information as to how the ski was acquired. I have been told by others that HO has good service, but I have not had this experience. Does anyone have suggestions as to how I could get the ski either replaced or upgraded at a reduced cost due to the unexplainable nature of the break, especially when it was not that old?
