And there's a "weakness" in the left heel area--more give in that area than other spots on the board. It's cracked, even though it may be very fine lines as though drawn by a mechanical pencil. If you're out of warranty, it's still cheaper to pay for a repair than a new one. Likely, you'll get a new, or newly refurred one anyway.
The problem is that when it cracks above the battery area--it pinches a wire or something causing the board to momentarily loose power. Unfortunately, it's a somewhat common issue--it has been discussed here before and I've had/currently have this problem. We were quoted $55 for the repair, but that's been...probably close to 2 years ago. We've just never got around to fixing it.
