In the end, board performance.

There is a point to where graphics is important though. As much as I like the look of the Burton love , I don't particularly want to be parading one of those around the mountain.

Sometimes graphics. Most the time there are a couple of options when you're choosing a board. So it makes sense that almost anytime you pick what you're going to be riding, you have a chance to make that decision based on graphic. But for me that choice is usually made more of the graphic I DON'T want to own.

I will not buy a board just because it looks good but there are ugly boards that I would never buy no matter how good they were.

A little of both. Performance is key, but there are more than a few boards that match my performance criteria, so graphics play their part too.

I used to care a lot more about graphics than I do now. Now it's mostly performance and if it looks fresh, even better. Some boards are just too ugly and usually you can find a comparable board with a design that you can dig.

At first I did when I started..But now I dont really care about graphics it's about performance for me. Like the one thing that makes no sence to me is when someone says that they're gonna get this binding because the colors match my board blah,blah. That's just simple to me, aren't your pants gonna cover the bindings anyways?
