You totally speak for two on that one.

Coudn't get pass the "It's not pretty enough" remark on countless boards with the wifey either...

Hell, you could farm out graphic design out to ice coast art kids or even a HS kid with minimal experience in illustrator—just get rid of the board graphics that look like someone with parkinson's disease stuck a crayon in their ass and drew stuff on a wet napkin.

And on the note of buying boards that look hideous and ride great, I love my Capita TFA but I think it looks idiotic—now if they made the outdoor living with the TFA shape, I'd be on that with the quickness.

However, what I don't get, and I believe happens pretty often, is people that buy a board because they LOVE the way it looks. Again, looks may be a tie breaker, but riding a board that really makes no sense for you because it looks sick is pretty funny.

My two cents....
