removing board graphics
« on: February 25, 2015, 12:22:37 PM »
Not talking spraypainting / sanding here.

I want to get rid of a graphic.  What's my best best?  I've hear that Acetone can strip it sort of like how nail polish remover works....

Does anyone have any experience using a kooky method to get rid of a kooky graphic?

Just skate it, nobodys going to think you're lame for riding a boulevard board.

Acetone/nail polish remover works but it's a fucking mess and the board I did it too never felt the same, soggy. If you go that route do it outside. Use cotton balls and start rubbing.

A kooky graphic? Dude, unless you're riding a revive, literally no one is going to give you shit. Just skate a lot, slide the shit off.

I just usually sand it with whatever excess grip I have. It takes a while but it works good.
Never tried acetone, I'm too nervous that I might do it wrong and maybe put too much and ruin the board in the process or something.
If I did so it I'd try it on an old board just to get the method down first.

skate it. or slide it along in tailslide, nose slide and board slide patterns so it looks like you skated it. What is the graphic if you don't mind me asking?

Sanding works just fine and I would think is less damaging than that acetone thing.
But seriously, a kooky graphic? It can't be that bad.

Skateboarding: come for the fun...stay for the drama.

Is there a way to get sharpie off that won't remove the shitty heat transfer graphic?  I have a couple of boards to sell that are signed.
