THE pimped board thread!


Recommended Posts

THis is the thread to show off your creativity! I have seen some gorgeous looking boards on random threads but nothing that has them all together, like one big garage of super sexy boards.:D

Feel free to post your board, whether it is just an exit toaster painted black or a super duper carbon and titanium super light freestyle machine!

 

I am currently in the process of pimping my comp6, I've changed most of the components bar the deck (perfect for me right now). I plan to make my own bindings and as per my other thread..paint my deck.

 

Now get some pictures up here!

 

Regards,

Mac

have you ever ridden that inverse one with the handles in the deck?

how does it handle torsional stress?

 

to be honest the carbon boards arent really pimped... they are designed to be bling and high performance, and that they are. (i'd know)

 

to me pimped is if you board started as run of the mill, and you went all snoop dizzle on it... shaping or painting it yourself or adding other parts

Yeah the decks belong to five different people - my decks are no's 3,4 & 6(from the top) and i plan on stealing the other D-EX when flyingfrog's not looking those eliptical trucks are so sexy

the pic doesn't really do any of the decks justice but you get the idea

Hi mate hows it going....

i can see what your saying about pimped and made to order but two of my carbon decks were shaped myself just like your latest carbon creation and there are other parts that can be pimped on a deck ... example the rockstar pro's on two of my decks have had the plastic spacers replaced with machined aluminium making them as bomb proof as the decks adding bling/pimpage and unfortunatley some weight but thats my trade off...also others who have posted off the shelf boards with new paint and graphics that make em look sick
