custom paint jobs

Didn't know where else to post this, Is it possible to see some custom paint jobs? I am not too excited with the flamboyant paint that is on my board, I don't want to stick out even more than I already do as a beginner!! Could this be a new thread?

By "is it possible to see some custom paint jobs" do u mean is it possible to do a custom paint job. Honestly I don't know, but I've never seen one before and doubt that it can be done cheaply.

What you need to do is sand the topsheet of the board so it has a rough surface, get all the lacquer off. Then lay down a basecoat of white paint or whatever, use spray paint as its not thick. Do your graphic the lay down a few coats of lacquer to seal it in.

It's not difficult to do but not many people do it.

I think Burton will do custom paint jobs on select boards.

Spend your time not looking like a noob and less about what you look like ..

If your pulling 360's in front of people with a purple board you are still > them.

Snowboards are allowed to be ugly ! I was feeling self-conscious about taking my Ugly Stick (2005 Burton Dominant with zebra topsheet and fluoro pink/blue base) out for the first time, but it wasn't half as obnoxious as lots of other boards out there. If you just want a custom paint job, hey, that's cool too.

I've only ever seen one "custom" board and it was a friend of mine's who stripped the top sheet and painted it white(as said above), then he took colored pencils to it and made some really cool almost tye-dye looking waves along the entire board(he's more of a surfer than a snowboarder). He then clear coated it. It was really sweet and he was in a lot of art programs at the time and the board won 2nd place at a county art fair. After winning, the top 3 are offered the chance to auction their art pieces for charity. He ended up pulling $200 and the guy who bought it said he was going to hang it up in his house. The board was originally an old Airwalk board. Sorry I don't have pics, but it was pretty sweet looking.
