Hmmmmm nah that's too easy, for mine. I'd have to be going back a ways, to how a board made me feel / how "wow" the graphics were at the time the board was launched.

Some include:
-- Field Earth pow deck last time I was in Japan (no denying that stuff like the Bataleon Surfer / Endeavour Archetype / Jones Hovercraft / Burton SK / etc look amazing, but next to this FE, they look pretty damn pedestrian -- thing looked like a space ship!)
-- Forum Jeremy Jones (with the Samurai on it)
-- Burton Johann Oloffsen (with the moon / night scape on it)
-- Burton Custom 99/2000 series
-- Atlantis Daniel Franck
-- Un Inc decks from back in that team's heyday
-- Rome Pintail 160 (specifically) - mine turned a lot of heads
-- probably the most stoked I've ever been, was when I knocked myself out for a minute (apparently), got up, had to ask my friend how to get to the bottom of a hill that I'd done 200+ days on by that stage (and which really had only 2 ways to get to the bottom), unstrapped, picked my board up, and was TOTALLY blown away that this 2002 Option Makkinen was actually MINE?>!?!?!

Interesting concept for your beanie, by the way. I've registered on your site (as I've thought about buying rugby headgear at various points in time, for use on the snow, in certain circumstances) -- but you need to change the text colour in the registration fields, as you've got black text in fields that are transparent onto a dark background.

Endeavor Archetype (2020 the best imo but in general such a futuristic shape in black is a killer):
154237

Yes the Greats 2019 (151 and 154 in particular):
154239
Capita Kazu (this one always looks great, probably the best board graphic year by year, for me 2020 the best so far).

Lib Orca 2019 (2021 looks great too after they’ve screwed up the 2020)

Korua Plus Line (again, you can’t go wrong with the stealth shape and full matte black)

Capita Spring Break Twin 2018 (mhmm)

I’d throw in K2 Simple Pleasures 2019, Bataleon Surfer 2020 (white) and probably a dozen more boards.

I’m always willing to pay more for a great graphic.

I like the base graphics of the 10 year Burton Custom. Think the coolest looking board has to be one of the 3d Field Earth or Burton 3d Fish. One of the Ride Timeless versions is pretty clean too.

My Burton ouija twin was probably the coolest looking board I owned.
Followed by my 2003 burton Canyon (with the Iris/eye graphic)
The first year customs were damn nice, especially the one with the turtle on the base.

I'm yet to see boards that, in my mind, can compete with those (but I know there must be, I've missed a lot of cool designs in the last 10 years or so).

Edit to add pics

Thunder, that looks like a 2015 Greats Jeffy Anderson.

EDIT: dunno what that guy is on, as I sold my 2016, run-of-the-mill graphic Greats for $280 a couple of seasons ago, and I felt like I was lowballing the sh7t outta myself (I was going through a hard cull).

Get on that if you still can!!!

I love my Nitro of 2009. One of the most successful and rigorous designs.
