Has anyone broken an AT paddle recently?

Hey!
Am just wondering if anyone else has had any issues with their AT paddle?
I brought a new AT2 and it snapped after 8 days on the coast. Am trying to get AT to fix what must be a faulty product, but they refuse to answer my emails etc.
Has anyone else had an AT thats snapped/broken in conditions they shouldn't have? It would really help my case if you could post what happened on this thread.
Thanks heaps,
Andrew

Well first what were you doing with the paddle when it snapped? Dosnt matter if its 8 days or 800 days if you get the paddle wedged between two rocks and snap it. But if it snapped under normal use then they should at least take a look at it. Try talking to the NZ distributor maybe if AT wont get back to you.
