water proof Stickers for your board (no brand)
 
How do you guys decorate your board??

Basically i have a pretty plain board. Im thinking about spicing it up with some stickers but i don't want to advertise for anybody.

I don't want a giant BURTON or DC splashed across my board.

I don't mind buying them, anybody knows of any place to buy some cool water proof stickers?

Or if not stickers then any other way to add some style to your board?

Honestly, why bother? Most boards these days have cool-looking topsheets anyways. Also, your riding should really speak for itself on the mountain. Forget about stickers and just go tear it up. :thumbsup:

Some stomp pads look pretty nice. Dakine Pyramid Studs don't even look like a stomp pad and can be customized in whatever layout you want. They come in chrome, black, white, and brass (bronze).

My board just has a blue top... no graphics. I mean, its not a HUGE deal. If i don't get stickers, its not like im going to stop snowboarding nor am i going to lose sleep if i don't find any stickers.

Just looking for ideas on how to make your board look better. Chalk it up to me being board and looking to buy unnecessary snowboard products.

This. I always forget about stomp pads until my un-strapped foot is slipping all over my board. :p

you could always learn to skate without a stomp pad on - it will make you better.

To the OP, you're asking something difficult, since you don't want to advertise. Most people get stickers of the board, bindings, outerwear, goggle makers and put them on their board creatively. I've seen energy drink stickers on peoples boards too (which makes me laugh). There are online guides (google search it). Don't put Burton stickers on your DC board etc, and don't have them all centered.

You can buy stickers from snowboard shops, or buy them off guys on forums who make die-cuts. Pm me if you can't find anyone. Or you can send sase to companies asking for free stickers.

The problem with 90% of all snowboards is that their graphics are immature shit. Full Stop. Unfortunately most stickers only make the problem worse. If you want some non snowboarding stickers (your best bet), id suggest going to cafe press and searching.

really? elaborate on how 90% of snowboard graphics are immature as shit? What do you want a fucking picasso literally painted on your board? Or a picture of the NYSE on there? Is that mature enough for you?

I love stickers. Personally I would get off the kick of not wanting to advertise for somebody. People bitch about that all the time and make you feel like a tool for having a sticker of a company. In all reality i think its just like showing your support for a company. If you like their products or riders or you have had good business with them then throw a sticker on. Hell throw on a sticker if it looks cool. I don't really know of a specific place that sells stickers other than a local shop. Maybe you can work a deal with them if you buy a certain amount of stuff you can get some free stickers. Also i don't really know much about specific water proff stickers. some hold up better than others, you just find out once you have been riding and stickers start coming off.

I dont mean immature like I need a picasso, i mean immature like 90% are made to attract high school kids (and look like they are made by high school kids). Seriously they are pretty much all shit. 1 in 10 is good, the rest look like ass.

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.

A friend of mine had a sticker from every resort he visited on his board. I thought it was a pretty cool idea..
