I'm not trying to tell anyone to buy this board or not buy that board. All I am saying is if you look at the specs and say, "Hot damn this is they type of board I want for the type of riding I do. I want this." Then when you see you see the graphics say, "Well that's ugly. This sucks. No Thanks. Deal Breaker." buy something else. Don't just not buy/ride the board you want based solely on the graphics. Graphics have zero to do with how the board performs. After you put your bindings on it changes how the whole thing looks anyway. Also it should be covered with snow.
