bseracka Graphics aren't that important to me. My new deck has almost a completely white topsheet, if I leave it in a snowbank I'll lose it. Personally unless I find the graphics offensive, or wouldn't want to be associated with what they represent I would buy the deck if it's what I want and fits my riding style. As an aside, I actually like ugly graphics (I bought bright orange and black Gnu Vertighoul) they're different and you won't see a lot of them and worst case it diminishes the likelihood someone will steal your board.

EatRideSleep I wasn't going to weigh in on this because in some ways they do and don't matter to me.

If the board is at an amazing deal, I don't give a shit about graphics. If I'm dropping a significant amount of money on it, yes, they do matter. Horrid graphics seem to add a sting to the price tag.

If I were in love with that board as you are, I'd tell myself the bindings will cover the palm trees enough to make it look more like an abstract watercolor and less like a Miami Vice Trapper Keeper.

jamesdthomas2 i know this may sound shallow but I would not buy a board that i did not like the top sheet.

This one is almost as bad as those Lobster Boards. It's very sexually explicit, so don't click.

AAA Oh man, Those Lobster boards are horrible. What the hell is wrong with those people? I certainly don't focus on graphics, but I'd never buy something like that!

TorpedoVegas Terrible graphics would be a deal breaker for me, but usually the worse the graphics are, the worse the boards are in general it seems, so no worries finding a decent board.

GreyDragon Here's what you do.
Buy the board you want.
Go to BoardSkins| Snowboard Graphics, Stickers, Wraps, Covers.
Choose from their selection of topsheets, or have them create one for you (perhaps from one of your fave photos).
Stick it on your board.

Problem solved!

extra0 like jello24 said, most people pay very little attention to others board graphics. I'm too busy doing other things on mtn (riding, eating) instead of board graphic sightseeing/criticism....and, unless boards are on the rack or you're looking up at the chairlift (or someone is sitting around on the top of the mtn trying to display their board), graphics aren't really as much on display as you think. On the other hand, an ugly jacket...

Those special ed lobster boards are pretty gross, but I'd ride one (if it was given to me) because the drawings are actually well done and I know hardly anyone is going to ever see it, anyhow

DesireeM81 I feel you there. That is an ugly board. As for the pickle being too soft for you to ride, I would check up on some of the videos that have been posted of pro's riding that board and the GNU - B-Nice for that matter. The softer boards seemed to be holding up quite nicely to those who like a little stiffer board. It's why I went with the B-Nice is the first place, soft enough to play on but I don't lose a whole lot of functionality.

Btw, I wasn't a big fan of the B-Nice graphics to begin with but when I got my boots and bindings, it all kind of fell into place to make one kick ass set up. Hope you can find something. I am huge fan of GNU also.
