yea i realy want to paint my board like this.... go to www.jsindustries.com and look under board sprays and it is the green spray called sp03, could i do that with spray paint or use the pens?
I could be wrong but that site looks like that's a selection of designs they offer for their boards. Not a spray product or decal, inlay of any kind. I would contact the site and ask questions. If you are not artistic you can always get a inlay. I've seen some pretty cool inlay's before. Spray paint can be pulled off if it is done right. Not my style. Paint Pens are the way to go. IMO .....I could show you plenty of surfboards that my friend has done that will blow your mind. I recommend getting the DVD from that site. It will show you the basics and some tricks on how to blend colors and teaches how to draw designs on your board.
I think you should be able to get something very close to that using spray paint...
thats a spray...and not a really hard one from the looks. Although its ALL hard
seriously, it looks like it just gets taped off once, and just hit it with the yellow and then the green...you'll need a fine gun and a fine touch. And don't use cheap tape..you'll regret it believe me. 1/4" auto quality for the curves, 1" for the straights...
i just posted int he other thread. and ill say some of the same stuff. if you are going to use spray paint to paint your board. go with a high quality spray paint such as Montana, or Belton. they were both designed by graffiti artists for graffiti. its extremely permanant, highly opaque, and it comes in over 200+ colors and shades. it comes with caps. but it would be a good idea to invest in some specialty caps such as, fading caps, outline, and fat caps. they can all be purchased for like 3.99 for 25 of them. can be purchased at www.artprimo.com or www.bombingscience.com as well as LOCAL graffiti shops, or art botiques. you wont find it at michaels or anything. i would personally steer away from paint markers. they are not long lasting and the colors will fade with exposure to the sun and water even if under a clear coat.

Hog wash.....Sounds like whoever painted their board didn't have a clue as to what they were doing....I've had boards painted for years and they look pretty much like they did when they were first painted. All boards fade in time. You just need to take good care of them. UV rays can be a *****. Clear coat is key. They do make UV protective clear coat.
Paint markers > Rattle can.....unless your airbrushing.
