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
Thanks, just wanted to make sure i'm not hurting the performance any. I appreciate the advice.
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 do 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?
no shortage of stuff to choose from. have a look at the 'sub moon' by firewire...
Pin stripes are a pretty solid choice for a LB
Also yes to the gloss coat. No effect on performance, it just looks nice and gives a bit of extra protection.
Thanks Mitchell, wasn't sure about that one myself, I like the two tone blue / white but not the yellow / red toward the tail. I'm kinda of leaning toward pinstripes or that blue / grey / black Takayama (1st one of the 2nd set of pics)
