So you guys would ride a pink board with unicorns, rainbows, and carebears on it? Since people are dropping $400+ dollars on a deck they might as well like the graphics on it. It definitely shouldn't be the sole determination for choosing a board, but riders can spend their money anyway they want (hookers included). BTW, I would rock the board I described above if the unicorn was pooping out the rainbow and puking out zombie carebears

You obviously don't know how bad I want this. FWIW I'm riding a board with a Unicorn on it.

Yup, if it was a board I wanted to ride then absolutely, wouldn't even think twice. I look at the shape, flex, construction, size, etc. Graphics are literally the last thing I consider when I buy a board. Actually there is no consideration given at all. I buy a snowboard to ride it no stare at it.

I agree with you that people can spend their money on whatever they want, but I think that graphics create bad board buying decisions. When you buy a board based solely on its graphic, then that is a problem. I see it all the time, people buy boards they have no business riding and their only buying decision is based on a graphic. If you don't ride the park or switch and all you do is just ride down the mtn, why would you buy a soft park board.

People need to think about how they want to ride not how cool their snowboard looks sitting on a wall. Unless of course that is the only reason you buy snowboards.

Don't know why it's a bad thing to comment on graphics, especially in a thread that's basically pictures of unreleased boards. Can hardly comment on how they ride or what the flex is like yet?

I don't look at the paint job of my car when I'm driving it, but I sure as hell wouldn't buy a car that looked like shit. When you fork out so much money for a board, it makes sense that you like the look of it. It wouldn't be the main reason sure, but the NS graphics look like this to me:

.

Like it or not, aesthetics play a huge part in why people like and buy things, if it didn't then everyone would produce blank boards.

Design in life is everything, but there are certain things where a graphic doesn't play into the performance of how it works. I wouldn't not ride a board that I thought would suit my needs best just because of the graphic. No one would drive that car because it is a piece of shit, less so than the actual colors/decorations. What if that was a lambo and someone said you could have it for free, but you had to leave the car looking like that? Only the colors, not some of the other stuff on it. Would you not drive that car because of the color? Just remember you'll sitting inside of it.
