Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a Graphic Blemished board?
A: The graphic blemish sale is a discount that we offer our customers on boards that have been scratched from being moved around the warehouse in bulk or whose graphic did not transfer 100% perfectly when being applied. These are all still brand new, never before ridden boards, whose blemishes do not affect the performance or way the board rides. It simply saves you money on what will happen from riding it anyways. Most blems are hardly noticeable and can easily be concealed with a sticker.
