    Paint job time!

    Dudes, I'm trying to figure out what I want my new LB to look like. It's going to be a 9' Single fin Performance LB. I was going to get the resin swirl thing done but then had second thoughts and have been looking at more classic looking boards. I'm having a hard time deciding... anybody got any pics they'd like to share of some ideas?

    Here's a dumb question. Does gloss / polish affect the performance in any way? I can get it with resin swirl and everything for approx. $700. I just don't want to put fashion over function, but I do want my board to shine and look good for a long time.

    Pay a little extra and get gloss coated- it's really the only way to go. Only board I wouldn't want to gloss is a shortboard where I'm trying to save extra weight and it's basically all white. Plus I think the gloss is smoother and actually makes the board faster in my option
