i cant help myself but....graphics!

i know graphics are just graphics and all of us here look down upon those who judge boards by graphics..... but mike parillo. cmon now...lib tech's boards with parillo graphics are just tooooo ILL. i find myself wanting to buy boards just to hang them up on my wall as functional art... hahaha. anyone feel me on this?
the T.rice is my fav board of all time, and the parillo graphics make it that much sweeter.

just had to get that off my chest!

For me, the only time it would come down to the graphics is when trying to decide on a new board and you have it narrowed down to a few boards that you really like with similar specs. And only then it would be only one small factor of many for making the decision.

I've never thought Parillo graphics were all that great honestly.

I've never let graphics determine what board I buy. I think the graphics on my NS Evo suck to be honest, but I love the board.

yeah, i think the general consensus is that lib tech graphics blow haha.

but don't like graphics infleunce your buy. I ride a 152 nitro subzero which i think is a rather lame design, however, i love its jibstickiness. <---- New word right there, it's mine!
