Never Summer Graphics = Ed Hardy Reject Art for the Snowboard World?

I have a NS Cobra from a couple of years ago that I love to ride. It's a well designed and well built board. But the graphics give me the douche chills. Anybody else? The tat inspired bird with daggers and crosses and shit reminds me of a cheezy tshirt that Justin Bieber would have worn out clubbing a few years ago.

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.

You ever see something trying to be cool and it just makes you cringe? It's that.

Lol...I quite like their use of restraint on graphics and think they generally do a nice job projecting a premium product. Definitely don't mind the Eagle branding. Although sometimes the base "text" graphics can be a little boring.

The one recent board I don't dig at all is the West...the graphics on that suck...hokey as shit...flies and buffalos and whatever...but each to his own...

Mind sharing a picture? I'd like to see what's wrong with it.

I like NS graphics. Guess I'm in the minority. Then again, I'd love a solid color option :P

I also thought it was a Phoenix but apparently it's an Eagle.
