Default NoOb needs help

OK, so I've been riding for a couple of years now, and Im starting to get sick of looking at the GREEN graphics on my K2 board. So instead of buying a new board, I was wondering is there any way I can cover the whole board with a custom graphics of my own?

If so what materials would I need. I basically what a all black board with a simple logo of mine.

Thanks for looking

Stickers. Do. Wonders.

I know it's not the most appealing idea, but honestly, I'll bet getting a custom overlay or something would be stupidly expensive. Just send a few Self Addressed Stamped Envelope into some companies, and you'll probably get stickers.

You really can't change your graphic since they are usually a layer or two under the top sheet. But there was a company a couple of years ago that you could send them your graphic and they'd inlay it into a new board. They'd do most any background color and then your graphic. A simple google search should tell you if theya re still around.

Most often what happens is you wear boards out and thus get to change the scenery looking down at the same time you get a new responsive ride.

Or just sand the topsheet down a little, and I mean a LITTLE, and go happy with spray paint and stencils and stuff.

you could probably get a vinyl/tint/sticker shop to produce something that would stick over the cover sheet like you see on cars at car shows...not sure how durable it would be with the temp and weather conditions but you could conceivably do that...

That's what I was gunna say. Spray paint stencils and stickers man. That would be your best bet, and not to mention cheapest.
