3 mms seems a bit large. A slight gap is very common, even with factory splits. Does it run the entire length of the board or is it only in certain spots?

If it is only in certain spots and it is a DIY I wouldn't hesitate to sand down the high spots and reapply your epoxy.

Post some pics though, there are folks on this forum with a lot more experience building these things than me and they can probably give you solid advice.

Factory split or DIY? Brand?

3mm? Cool! Not only will you get face shots but potentially crotch shots. Yeah sorry, burton is shit. Work the warranty and get something better ... waterjet DIY FTW!
