Very nice work!!!!!!!!! :thumb: - I especially like the red one! You taking orders?

The Camo/Grey scheme is nice, but wouldn't it be hard to find if you lose sight of it?

So give us the details - construction, weight, size, how it rides??

Hi Rocket - just a suggestion for the paint. I know the vinyl logo is cheap and fast, but it does leave a ridge around the graphic that you have to bury under lots of varnish. Since you have access to a vinyl cutter - cut a "paint mask" vinyl. Use that for your mask and airbrush your logo and graphics on. Paint it thin and you only need enough varnish to protect, very little paintbuildup and makes for a lighter board too.
You can get pretty funky with the background graphics with the airbrush painting too - from mild to wild.

You planning on selling any of the boards commercially? I think you will have a lot of buyers - they look really good!!!
