If the back of the snowboard is black is there anyway to custom design it with sharpies, or paint?

if you are handy with a dremel tool, you could always *lightly* carve a design in the base and fill with a white ptex on a black base or vice versa for a custom, one-off, home brew design.  Definitely not for your brand new $500 deck. I picked up an old beatup Jamie Lynn 151 for $30 and I experimented with it a little bit.  Just gotta be careful not to cause any self-induced core shots LOL . . . . . .

That sounds like disaster in the making!!

To the OP, trick out the top of your board all you want, but I'd say leave the base alone....

Well, it was a $30 board, what can I say? I'm artistically inclined and I happened to let my mind wander off that day LOL  Like I said tho.......I would NOT do it on a (brand new) board that I gave a shat about.

It sounded intriguing, being artistically minded myself. I suppose on a "throwaway" board it could be fun. Got pics? How's the board ride since then?

I don't got any pics handy, but I might be able to get some pics up this weekend.  I'm at work right now and heading up to do some night riding as soon as I get off. 
 
The ride isn't the best, but the base was pretty beat up when I bought it, so I wasn't expecting too much after grinding parts of it away with a dremel LOL
