Whether you just don't want to be like anyone else, or you just don't want to spend the money, there are many ways to learn how to customize a snowboard. You want your snowboard to reflect who you are and you want it to look cool, because you are going to have to look at it everyday. You can customize your snowboard cheaply, or you can spend a lot of money having it professionally designed. Check out these options for customizing your snowboard:
In order to learn about how to customize a snowboard, you will need:
- The amount of money you want to spend
- Customize a snowboard with stickers. There are many different kinds of stickers you can use. Grab some stickers the next time you are in your favorite board shop. Take a sticker from places you have been snowboarding (like Mt.Hood) for example. Many snowboarding companies offer stickers that are as big as your snowboard. These are like tattoos for your snowboard and give the appearance of a completely new board. Some companies even let you design the sticker.
- Customize a snowboard by ordering it. Many snowboarding vendors allow you to customize your own snowboard. Burton, Venture and Volcom offer this service (just to name a few). If you go to your local boardshop, they might have even more options and then you can tell them exactly how you want them to customize your snowboard.
- Customize a snowboard by painting it. This can be tricky. But if you mess this up, don't worry, you can always go back to stickers. Painting your snowboard is the best way to ensure that no one else's snowboard looks like yours. Make sure that you practice your design on paper first. Also, make sure that you get acrylic spray paint. Note: Remove your bindings unless you also want to paint them. For best results, wipe your board off first.
