Hey NSer's. I made this thread in Gear Talk aswell, but realised I needed quick eyes time as I'm going back to the shop tomorrow.
I need some knowledge and opinions on a waxing I got a local shop 3 days ago. Shouldn't be too hard for some quality advice on what to do. Please bear with me as I'm shit at writing/wording plus knowing fuck all about wax/tune etc shit does't help.
So, I have a pair of K2 Revivals in 9.8/10
I recently picked up a Living Social coupon for a lift ticket to Bear Valley, $50 in store credit and a FULL service tune up, total cost of coupon was $70 (Promotional value $120)
Went in, spent the credit, got the ticket, got the FULL tune-up. (picked up my skis 2 days later)
Didn't check my skis condition at time of pickup.
Skied all day on them yesterday, came home. Wiped the bases and noticed one of my tails.
The rivets have been completely flushed with base?! Uneven at that. Looks like what ever method of buffing up my bases was done was held to long on. Notice as well, the notch missing at the tip. Unsure weather the missing edge is linked to the reason for the rivets being ground down as I never noticed it before but again, Its only missing on that ski.
Heres a pic of my other tail. Clearly not ground down and flush. You can even see where the clean base starts from having dirty tips.
So they fucked up right?
Theres no way I could of done this? I bailed a few times in the park, but nothing like what I'd expect you'd have to do to ground them down that much.
Obviously I'm going back there with my skis tomorrow to see what they say. Just want some advice before I go in there on what to say and expect. These are my first pair of skis and love them like a newborn, but seriously, A FULL tune up shouldn't entail a grounding down and what looks like negligence with tools should it?
Another query I have is, should a FULL tune up be more than a waxing? Any gouges I had on my bases should of been filled right?
I think because I got the tune-up for a discounted price, corners were cut and I just got cheapo tune. Instead of getting the FULL service the coupon said I'd get. More bothered by the fuck up than the difference in the tune up but again, I don't know shit.
Anyone else had problems like this? What dd the shop say? Have I got a leg to stand on being as I've skied on them since the tune-up and didn't check them at pick up?
Any thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated.
