The West really pulls my living room together though with the way it complements my Big Mouth Billy Bass singing wall hanging.

I'm hoping the next one comes out with something to match my dogs playing poker painting.

IMO, it's the best all around board they've ever built, but the graphic is gonna turn a lot of people off. I wouldn't buy that bass board either and I'm not a guy heavily swayed by graphics.
Totally agree the fish should have been a trout. I would not buy the bass. Dumb. I did like the elk and I think the bison will look cool.

Never having gone clubbing with Justin Beiber, I can't put a picture to this idea. I know the NS graphics change from year to year and some of them I like and others are more "meh".

Do you have a pick of the specific graphic from that year?

Edit: the eagle/phoenix is an element in many of their graphics and I like it. It's pretty absurd to compare that to the Nazi's- the eagle on the German flag was for West Germany, not the Nazis, BTW. The way West Germany was set up after WWII was about as anti-Nazi as you could get.

Not a fan of the bass, but liked the elk.

Edit2: I googled Ed Hardy and that that looks way more like Lib Tech than NS....

yeah thats a silly thing to bring in to it....I can see why people would find NS graphics "lame" but I like that they're a little less in your face than many others. It won't be something I look at in 5 years and say "wow, I was in to some silly stuff". I agree that the Libs and some others have far more ridiculous art.

I'm fine with graphics. Not great, but pretty nice.
I really live Quincy Quigg graphics on Lib tech Skunk Apes from 4-5 years ago: dark, demons, nice details.
On the other hand I don't really care about it: I got a chance to get a custom graphics and went all black (ptex topsheet)

I feel like NS can provide the boards, t-shirts, and other personal accessories that I need to accentuate my tattoo lifestyle.

Before anybody gets offended, I'm not saying that you can't do proper, fully committed carving turns on a hybrid board. I'm just saying that you can definitely get away with more lazy turns on a hybrid board if you want to. Because it's true.
