Greetings peeps! This is my first post here
Soooo. I bought myself a nice intermediate board the other day. I live in Japan, so was struggling to explain to the nice, patient shop assistant what I needed and what I wanted to do in Japanese (though I live here, my language ability sucks). He hooked me up with a Rossignal Decoy true-twin, with some funky carbon fibre twisty bits inside.
Now, the picture on the back seemed okay at the time, and the board was about right for the money I was spending. I'm more into function than aesthetic. But. When I got the board home, I realised that the image on the bottom of the deck is suitable for a thirteen year-old skateboarder.... a shame really. It's a good board, and should last me a few years.
I asked if they'd exchange the board (factory waxed and with bindings attached) and they said, "nai."
So, my question: Does anybody have any experience with doing home repaint jobs? If so - could you make some suggestions on how I'd go about doing it.
Will it affect the life-span or performance of the board?
Thanks in advance!
