Surfing For Life
When purchasing surf stickers, bare in mind that these are designed more for notebooks, the bedroom or other indoor use. Some of the stickers are printed on vinyl but most are paper and will not stand up to the elements. If you are wanting to apply a graphic to your car or surfboard, you will need to choose vinyl decals which are designed for exposure to water and will hold up much longer.
These peel and stick wall stickers are re-usable and washable. They are great for surfaces that are not smooth. Textured walls ... no problem. Because they are re-usable, they won't leave a residue so they're good for sticking on furniture.
How To Put A Sticker On A Surfboard
- First things first, paper stickers won't last, make sure you use vinyl stickers.
- Make sure the area you are putting the decal is completely clean. This means removing all the wax from the area and I mean all of it.
- When putting on the decal, be very careful to remove any air bubbles as you are applying.
- Pay attention that the edges of the decal are rubbed down hard and no air (water) will get in under the edges.
