Thumbs down Ridiculous snowboard graphics....

When did snowboard manufacturers decide "Let's put some skulls, blood, knives, guns, etc. on our boards and that'll be cool and sell."? Some of this shit on these top sheets and bases baffle me.

Every year there's more crap that looks like it's been yanked from a horror comic book and slapped on top of a REALLY good board, but you're stuck with shitty graphics.

Look forward every year to new tech being built into the latest boards and then they roll out with a human skull on it.....

I'm sure some people think the graphics that you personally like look like shit.

I think it comes from skateboard graphics...and lack of imagination. I hate them too.

He likes his board shaped like a big vag. Might make for a good split tail pow board design!

I love it. If you have to be mature and conduct yourself professionally with the rest of your life, sometimes it's nice to dress like a stupid teenager.

i think its way overkill. the artwork itself is awesome, but it belongs on a poster or a t shirt. personally, i would much prefer plain top sheets .. arbor comes to mind. The K2 Happy Hour also comes to mind..
