.......who comes up with the graphics on the wakeboards??? And how do they apply them to the boards??? I'm amazed at some of the creative designs and would love to do something with my CWB Pure, which is basically a pure white board. I'd luve to jazz it up with something cool. Are they clearcoated??? Some one here must know. JimN??? MyMC??? Maeghan??? HoosierBob????

I am just surprized you put Hoosier Bob in with that group of names. After all we are talking wakeboards, not kneeboards - right?

They are usually a sheet graphic that is applied during the molding process.

Probably graphic artists that sample the herb.

True, so true! When I painted the graphics on the wakeboards of my RC X-Star, I had to get a Corona Buzz going to get my mind right!:rolleyes: 8p :D

I have had IT….. with all the wakeboarding bashing on here

“sample the herb.”

You need beer to come up with “graphics on the wakeboard boats”

You guys don’t have a clue what wakeboarding is all about

Oh what..Now I think about it ?????? Never mind :rolleyes:

Hey, hey, hey........some of us wakeboarders are not stoners and drunks. I can't speak to my past :D but I don't sample the herb and I probably drink about as much as you single stick guys. ;)

As for the wakeboard, they are done in the mold process but you can paint it fairly easily. Just paint what you want on the board with a paint that is not water based and then clearcoat it a couple times. The reason for the clearcoat is so that the water doesn't ruin the drunken paint job you put on it. If you are painting the top you really don't have to clearcoat it as it doesn't take the beating that the bottom will.

Your other option would be to have a design made on a vinyl sticker that you cover the board with. This is a good option for the top but if you do this on the bottom you could change the performance of the board in the water. Can anyone say FACEPLANT?

Come to think about it, I have seen more people on here paased out in a bed with a stick than a board. You may have something here!
It's Al Gore's fault, he invented beer!
