I know you're joking about this, but if there was a snowboard with a Picasso AND a picture of the NYSE on it, that would be fucking awesome. I would buy it immediately and be the most sophisticated bastard on the mountain.

Trust me. I have owned a company which won national awards for design. I know shit when I see it, and its all pretty much shit. Having that that there are some that I would classify as "good" and a minor few as "great".


Chances are you are riding a board which looks like a big piece of shit.
Oh really, god of all things appealing to the eye, the board on the left is my "adult board" (board on the right is my park board/shit stick), please tell me why in your expert opinion why my board looks like a big piece of shit.

Also, in case you were wondering what a big piece of shit looked like, i took the liberty of finding one for you, there ya go.




So please, go on.

well, they ARE stickers - so chances are it's best not to overthink it.

I gotta agree with this. The majority of boards to me look like they're designed to impress kids. Like pretty much everything from Lib Tech (amongst others). Looks like Ralph Wiggum ate one too many crayons and puked on the boards. See below:



I hate to sound like a fanboy but I think Burton has more "mature" graphics in general (on about half the boards). And Never Summer is decent too, usually with a single colour topsheet with a single graphic somewhere. Some of the Arbors look like true art too.



Overall I prefer to see the tech built into the board. My current T7 actually is clear in sections so you can see the core, and the rest of the design is meant to look like animal/tiger fur. Or the carbon fibre with simple logos on the Virus board...

Actually your boards look less offensive than most.

every company is guilty of making childish-looking boards, even burton (ala the restricted custom, restricted harvest and easy livin). lib also makes some awesome-looking decks. the new skate bananas and banana magic i consider a case in point.

I did, years ago. It's still annoying when you're skating or traversing at high speed and the snow on top of your board starts to melt and get slippery. Still, I never get around to putting a stomp pad on.
