Customized Swoard EC gen4

Postby nickb » Thursday 22 November 2012, 12:20

Hi Guys,

just wanted to share with you my first attempt to customize my new swoard ec 168. I've used airplanes/vehicles decoration printed stickers. Result is not perfect but as a first attempt I'm quite happy. And anyway underneath my swoard will keep protected. Now need to see how long it last on the slopes. I'll let you know. Anyone else tried something similar with their own swoards?

It was a whole 175 x 30 cm printed sticker. I've shaped and trimmed it with a precision blade all around the shape, need to trim it as much as possible in order to have as few attach point as possible...

In 1996 I've made a completely fresh design on my Nidecker SL 176cm asym board. We've used 3m stickers and we did cut the design on a vinyl cutter. Last year (2011) I've removed almost fresh sticker and wasted the board.

Now I am a big fan of spray-painted artwork :-) But this board looks nice, really :-)
