Who has the worst board graphics; HanaCrew, Stretch, or RRD?

RRD has the worst. Maybe its the Italian thing. Saw a new stretch board on the beach today with girl with giant tits airbrushed on. Pretty good if you like that kind of thing (airbrushes, i mean. who doesn't like tits).

You forgot Slingshot! I had a few Drakes both 2002 and 2003 and the graphics on it is definitely the worst ever, even if it is a nice perfect glossy quality, it's still a set of skulls under your feet and it's just ugly...
Seems that they make it better for 2004 though.

Naish took the same way this year with some of their boards... poor guys! :roll:

Keep it simple!

Funny thing graphics, no matter how good the product might feel or ride if its got stuff on it you hate, you aint gonna buuy it.

I hate that 132sx graphic and I love skulls & death ride shit, you can probably even guess the bike I ride.

But cheap peach threadbare carpet... gimme a break how can you honestly have an opinion on style with a carpet like that.. and you like some stupid winged salamander gay ikon on your kite.

Who has the best board graphics? (Seriously, no pun)

Also, who has the best kite graphics?

Geez I pimp your brand and I still get shit. Everyone who's seen the new SX boards has commented on how cool they look. Maybe John Doyle made the flames to match his flaming board shorts he sometimes wears, who knows.

Anyway stop baiting me, forecast looks good today so I can't be made unhappy! :D

Aesthetics and personal prefrence aside, I think any board that is predominately blue, dark green, black or white has bad graphics - too hard to find if you loose it in waves or chop.

Nothing is worse than an invisible board when you are bodydragging in 5 (40F) degree water. Might not impress your friends, but the gay-80's-poleboard-type colors are very utilitarian when you do not have a board leash.

Well My MTX has awesome graphics BUT its mainly black so I hope can find it in the surf

the New Naish lines look good but last years were so bad!

GF the SX boards look great! the big star on the bottom is simple but effective!
see http://www.kitesurfing.org/events/2004% ... /index.htm

Sorry Gumball but the Best Boards are about as pretty as the Best Kites!

Skulls rock! :thumb:
