Designing your board

I just thought that some of the people here would like to know the different ways to customize their boards.
While I was researching and looking for my snowboard, i decided to look at Riley's blank snowboard, and on the site they had tutorials on how to customize your board.

Tutorials - Blank Snowboards

I think these are pretty good tutorials, they all have videos with them, pricing, but they don't tell you a specific timeframe of durability.
Personally, I would go for vinyl or board wrap.

Durability is stated at the top of every tutorial. Low, medium or high. Time frame is quick IF they print it right away. Wrapping a board, if the design is already printed can take less than an hour if the person applying it is knows what hes doing.
A wrap should last years unless it takes damage on the mountain. Like from other boarders crashing into you, which would obviously damage the vinyl topsheet

Looks like inexpensive DIY graphic options. For awareness, though, there are also companies like Donek who will build you a true custom board...length, width, sidecut geometry, flex pattern, etc. to your (or their suggested) specs as well. Topsheet, too.

yeah i wasn't sure how many of us have the kind of money to pay to have custom-made boards maybe it's not expensive though. Vinyl topsheets are good enough for me haha.

Donek's prices are really competitive with non-custom high end boards.
