Unhappy Vinyl air bubbles

Hey guys. I got a Blank Snowboard.
I got vinyl paper, printed it off and pasted it on, cut it.
The same day we constantly checked for air bubbles. There were none. Today I tried looking a bit at its flex. Then later I noticed air bubbles? I barely flexed it cause I was using my hands.... ???? Should I gently poke it with a knife to let the air go or what should I do? I don't want to ruin my vinyl?

Just wait till you have ridden it for for day or two. The vinyl is not nearly as resilient or scratch resistant as a regular top sheet, so you will have a record of every board that scraped across yours and of every errant ski pole. Consider them battle scars and badges of honor.

Don't poke it, don't even touch it.
Over time it will go flat & it should stick itself back on.

Do you have a big enough freezer you could to put it in?

That will drop the pressure & maybe it'll stick & stay down?
