Default What Graphics...???

So i posted in another thread earlier, about a board i have every intention of buying when the season gets under way this coming winter, the problem i have, is...

a/ I am very indecisive

b/ Not sure what is possible

c/ Bad at design

So, if you could have a custom board made for you, with custom graphics top and bottom, what would you choose...???

I kind of like simple, but also want people to understand it is one of a kind... IE no other like it...

I can literally have anything i like on this board...

Please clarify, are you buying a board and want to customize the graphics, or building your own board?

If you want to customize the topsheet only, check out BoardSkins| Graphic Sticker Wraps Snowboards Skateboards Longboards. They can create a topsheet for you, even from one of your photos apparently.

I'd want to have something pure. Eyes catcher boards for me are the ones with wooden topsheets like Arbor or Jones has, or the Rad Air Tanker with alu topsheet poster over here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sno...-quiver-2.html looks awsome too.

White topsheet black base. Then you tell people it's a super top secret prototype that no one will know about for 2 more years.

Or you're a former Transworld Snowboard Magazine Good Wood tester and just got used to the old "blind" comparison method.
(Bastards should have never changed that either, but it was the only way Burton would win an award I guess.)


To OP, how much is this custom board gonna cost?

Somewhere between 800-1200 or for all you over the big pond between $1000-1500

But it is made exactly how i want it, i can choose size, style camber, materials, side cut, lip and obviously graphics...

So i am going to test some different boards this season, over a couple of days, and will then sit down with what i have in my mind for feeling of the different boards i ride and decide exactly what i want...

Should be an interesting experience and i will only have myself to blame if i don't like what i end up with... Although the aim is to go for a POW board that i can use on groomers i bet i end up with something i use in the park... Haha
