I derped my board since I was getting sick of Ride's fairly ugly turquoise. Just some carbon fiber and scraps left over from work cut by me.

Before-


After-


Since I can be such a derp on the slopes..

So you removed the topsheet? What exactly did you do? Your derped-out ride looks nice!

Thanks =]

The factory paint/top sheet still remains and is unharmed (its actually protected by the over sheet of vinyl now). I just took off the bindings and wrapped the entire board in vinyl with some carbon fiber scraps laying around the shop (I work at a vinyl shop, we usually do cars like this). The colorful design was also some scraps from a vehicle we wrapped a while back, I saved them because I loved the look so much (I think we called it unicorn vomit lol).

That's a great story. I love seeing how people sometimes customize their stuff.
"Unicorn vomit" kind of goes with the sticker too, even though that's not exactly a unicorn!

Default Sticker Project

This is what my board looks like now, just picked it up this season (Ride Buckwild 2013) and the thing is a monster.

Now here is what I want it to look like in a few weeks. I've got a printer that can print vinyls so getting the stickers wont be a problem. I printed the to-be stickers onto regular paper just test out how they'd look.

If i do say so myself, this is definitely one of my best sticker jobs to date.

Let me know what you guys think.

That's awesome! I've been trying to put stickers on my helmet, too, but every time I try they go on all messed up because of the curvature of the helmet.

How did you get yours on so clean? Looks nice!

It's weird I know but ever since I was little I loved stickers and I used to put stickers on everything.. Basically it just takes alot of patience .. The Oakley symbol was the hardest to lay flat but I just kept peeling and resticking. The actual lettering I just put on one letter at a time and tried to keep the spacing and curvature even.

Hmm, thanks. I'll try that next time.

So I just cut the sticker into pieces and then jigsaw it back together on the helmet? That makes sense because less space would mean less bubbles and creases.

Actually I kept it all as one piece , I just bent the paper backing and placed each letter one at a time, though cutting it would be just as good . There is one tiny crease in the Oakley symbol also, but physics didn't really give me an option lol

I stickered the shit out of my truck.. And my girlfriends truck also. I'm relentless lol

Def lmk how it works out for you though man I wanna see pics
