Adding your personal sense of style and favorite colors to your deck is essential. It sucks to find a great board with a lame graphic or vice versa. Any boring deck is converted easily with some spray paint, but then what? Some can hand paint lettering or images, make stencils, or even glue a collage to the bottom… However, not everyone is an artist, and has the time or skill to do so. That’s why I was thrilled to find one of my favorite local longboard companies allows you to customize your deck on their website.
Bustin’ Boards holds it down in Hoboken, NJ and NYC. If you check out their site, you can go to town on their Strike, Sojourn, Spliff and Cigar boards- you can choose a graphic, several layers of color for the graphic and deck, color of the wood stain, grip tape and Bustin’ logo. It is a lot of fun, and most of the boards have enough space for you to add your own art as well post production. These are great boards, so check out the site and tinker with your own unique longboard.
