Default Snowboard look better with/without stickers

I bought a Burton Custom X this season. After a few times out, I started seeing some ugly top sheet scratches. So, I ordered some stickers to cover the scratches. I was just wondering peoples opinion on snowboards with stickers.

I think they look good. But I don't want people thinking I am some kind of sponsored boarder (I am ok, but not great by any means). Take a look at my Burton Sherlock before and after pics.

It doesn't look bad at all. The way you set it up it almost looks like it is apart of the board design. But that is just my opinion.

I think you should just paint it so nobody knows you're riding a Burton

I'm pretty sure no one will think you are a sponsored rider. And who cares what others think your board looks like anyway

I don't like the Nike stickers, the burton ones make the board look better...that's a pretty brutal design, it would be hard not to improve it with stickers. Burton makes some ugly ass boards

I am fairly indifferent to stickers either way really. I think it can make a board look good with some on, but hey...its not about that. I think the stickers you've put on look ok, my one suggestion would be to get some more from companies that you also have gear from (so, not just burton) that are different colours and apply them as well, just to break up the black white red scheme that you got going on there.

If you do that, you'll get +2 rail hold, and +4 pop.

It looks way better with the stickers, they kinda break up that optical illusion feeling all the closely spaced lines create. Crafty work man it looks clean.

Yup. Stickers really have a huge effect on your stats. I threw a 32 sticker on my board last week. Now I can get an extra 180 of rotation on my spins and can hold a tail press through a down-flat-down. Didn't believe the sticker hype at first, but now I know better. How do you think Torstein does it? It's all those "awsm" stickers he's got.
Also, giving your board a name is a good idea.
