    Default Just finished my board artwork.

    THE TRACTION HAS BEEN MOVED


    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.
    BEFORE:

    AFTER:


    "drop skimmers not bombs"

    its not the most legible thing but it was a try.

    wtf does drop skimmers not bombs mean?
    "Did you know you could perhaps kill somebody?"
    "Yea, but I wanted to do hoodrat stuff with my friends"

    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.

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

    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.

    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
