Default Burton Custom Marilyn Monroe

Sweet looking graphic. Would love to snag one of these but looks like they are all gone already.

Custom Marilyn Snowboard | Burton Snowboards

You mean this link...?

I don't get it though, why do men feel the need to buy this commercialized crap that has nothing to do with snowboarding....

Ooooh look at me

Sorry to rain on your parade, but it is just childish to think it makes you look cool...! And you may think that is harsh, but I rip my mate to pieces for the same thing every time he brings out his Pamela Anderson board...!!!

If someone likes the graphic, who cares?

I get that, but it doesn't make you cool, though, and for the most part, the type of people who would like this, have no idea that you are paying over the top, simply for a graphic that really has no place being on a snowboard... Haha

It also makes people think it is collectible, and worth more, so they pay more... All a marketing con...

That same picture, on the wall though, may be considered cool...

Just curious, what graphic does have a place on a snowboard?

Again, if someone else likes it, who cares?

Do you think getting your panties in a wad over a snowboard graphic makes you look cool?

Not a half naked woman that is for sure... and I know she is not half naked, but you get what I mean...! If you had young kids that where impressionable, you may think the same...

What people like, look at etc is not an issue, what they show off in public should be open to scrutiny... All I'm saying is there is a time and a place for "art" like that, and I don't believe it is on a snowboard that is all...

And I never got my panties in a wad as you called it, I simply said I don't get it, which I dont, and it really doesn't make you look cool, it makes you look like you have no respect for women...

Not a single one of those images is showing anything more than can be seen on network television every single night. Better not take your kids to a beach or swimming pool.

As soon as you have to invoke the "but, please think about the children!!!" bullshit excuse, you're out of effective arguments.

You must really hate the old Burton Love graphics.



God forbid you ever saw a Yes Boobs snowboard. Before you go hating on it though, that board was used to raise money for breast cancer.

My board has a girl in a bikini on it...

And I could care negative amounts of fucks about if anyone thinks its a big marketing scheme or a cheap way to sell more boards or even if John Smith thinks it's warping his kids... Guess what... It's... wait for the key word here, MY Board. Just my $0.02
