My Pony Snowboards by idontrunntoofast My Pony Snowboards by idontrunntoofast
Well ski season is almost upon us and I have something special to show you! after last season I decided to make my own custom pony-related boards.  and now I have! I base coated these with a hplv gun and then did the details with my airbrush.

...I was planning on taking pictures of these on my first trip but I sorta wanted to post them before :icontsitra360: got his finished and posted. :icontrollface-plz:

20% Cooler Board: a 159 cm Ride all-mountain board
Individual shot: fav.me/d6tvklh

Pinkie Pie Party Board: 145 cm FreeSport all-mountain board I made as a gift to my sister
Individual shot: fav.me/d6tvlzz

Twilight Sparkle Board: This is a 160 cm Type-a all-mountain board
Individual shot: fav.me/d6tvn5b


I used custom mixed oil based marine grade paints and marine grade clear enamel.
I had B&Z mix the colors for the 20% Cooler board but the other two boards I mixed the colors myself.


To you description readers: I intend to start making a combination of short comics and paintings that will follow Zecora's Journey to Ponyville so if you are interested in that sort of thing stay tuned ;-)

Thank You! I enjoyed working on these... and now I have the coolest boards on the slopes ;-)
You really should! If/when you do paint a board you need to make sure I see it! I am not on DA very often, but if you message me I will see it.

Trial and error, This was my first real paint project (besides a birdhouse back in grade school ;-) the 20% cooler board was my first one and I actually completely sanded off the paint twice before getting it right. the other two just sort of came together after that. once I had the technique down.

Yes! 

I call dibs on the rainbow dash one. :icontrollfaceplz:

Nah. Kidding. I probably wouldn't remember how to snowboard.

Yeesh. Ages. I think I was about fifteen the first time I boarded. I'm nineteen, almost twenty now. So if that puts into perspective how long.

Well then learn how! I have taken many first time skiers/boarders with me and within the first day they usually have picked up the fundamentals and are riding the bunny hills with ease. It really isn't that hard ;-)

I'm actually in In California. Do you board a lot? at some point This season I will be in Oregon. I would totally let you try it out ;-) what size/style board do you ride?

:iconminimoose772:
minimoose772 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013
In California till January maybe, then back to Washington. I put in 50-100 day seasons and typically ride a 159 twin - something that can mash pillows and slay park, though I must admit that I've been riding more pow as of late. Been stoked on a 159w Rome Postermania, though I've been riding Dinosaurs will Die for a couple seasons before that (super solid brand, worth checking out). I'd try to make a trip down to Hood, or might be in Tahoe around Christmas.

So how do you do this? do you get a blank snowboard or something? or do you remove the image on a normal board and paint the new one?
I kinda wanna try this myself now :D

I just sent you a step by step. Check your notes ;-)

Thanks TSI! I was planning on doing a custom board through Revolution or Monson boards, but I thought that it would be fun to try painting it myself. as you can see It was fun enough That I ended up doing several ;-) (plus I already had some good boards that I like so that saved me money). I would really like to meet up at a resort sometime this season, we need to work something out. :-)
