Default So Psyched!!!!

Got my used 2009 Rome Notch 158cm from Gear Trade today!!! It looks cherry. Can't wait to dress this bad boy up with some stickers and decals. Is it ok to do that? Only the bottom will ever need to be maintained right? I see people put them through some kinda machine for "heat pressing"?? Whats that all about? Will the stickers interfear?

Will using rubbing alcohol on the top be ok? Or hydrogen peroxide?
I want to clean the spot where i put my stickers so it gets a good hold. Don't know if that will damage the board coating?

It's not an egg..... Unless your using something really harsh your not going to hurt it. Even windex or something is fine

And your gonna have to explain this heat pressing. Are you talking about a heat gun or what?

I guess I'm wrong about the heat press. I saw pictures on various websites of people putting the boards through machine presses. Guess that was just in the beginning when they were making and bending the ends?

You should take a tour of a shop that builds boards, it will answer a lot of your questions.

They don't bend the edges but the boards are pressed/sandwiched, likely by the machine your talking about

Kinda a stretch, but it's possible.

take it easy. Its a snowboard. The fashion will change and your board will look dated and ugly in 2 seasons.

Don't worry about making it uglier with stickers of companies that have brainwashed you into actually buying their logos and giving them money to advertise their product.

If its new, stickers will stick fine without cleaning the topsheet. Just wipe with a damp cloth.

And don't put stickers on the base.
