this is my first attempt at any sort of artwork on my board. Let me know what you think. I tried to keep the design pretty simple.

it's "drop skimmers not birds" which makes even less sense

wtf does drop skimmers not bombs mean?

bunkerking692

dropping bombs = war

dropping skimmers = run, drop, slide

dropping humans out of a plane would be far more demoralizing than bombs.

edit: oh you mean like skimboards? i've always said "skims" to abbreviate skimboards. skimmer is usually the person participating in the sport.

Chrith

dropping skimmers = picking up a skimboarder and dropping them. the same way youd drop a bomb but much less effective

its not an original quote, i got it from the old maui i inherited

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c160/speedosquad911/002-7.jpg

grammatically it doesnt make much sense but, its more or less a tribute to this old board that finally broke

well move back and then get comfortable to it there.

he didnt want to stick the pad over the decal on the bottom!

UmmmmIdk

I would think that it relates somewhat to the "Bomb hills not countries" from a Sector9 Bomb Hills longboard.

P.S. Your back pad is wayyyyy high bro.

bunkerking692
12-10-2008, 09:54 PM
people have told me about the whole sector 9 thing. and im curious who came up with the saying on the bottom of my maui board/ sector 9 first. cause the maui is pretty dam old. but who knows.


AND I AM CURRENTLY MOVING THE TRACTION SO EVERYONE PLEASE STOP TELLING ME.

boards sick. rep'd. i had trouble with paint pens. the paint would just ball on the board and wouldn't stick. did you sand first or just get rid of wax and paint away?

i talked to eric roush first and he said it was a necessity to remove all of the wax, and then sand the board, it the only way the paint will stick. four coats of clear gloss later and it felt pretty friggin durable

i just wanted to avoid having any part of the traction hanging off the beginning of the curve towards the rail. i would rather have it a tiny bit high, and not have it start to peel up
