You should be able to use a heat gun to get it to start peeling. Maybe even try a hair dryer at first.

The only way to get an actual "blank" deck (white/colorless) is to paint it... the graphics are permanently printed onto the top and bottom sheets, and underneath them is just fiberglass. The best you're gonna get it just painting it.

Kind of off topic but the layer with the graphics is pealing off of my fish. ANy way to fix that?

Lightly sand the top and hit it with some primer. Then you can spray paint it and make it nice and ghetto without worrying about paint chips in your boat.

I've peeled the topsheet off of a substance. Its basically just a big plastic sticker. Once its off you've got a perfectly white, plain top.

Here's a few shots of a board that the graphics peeled off.

so is it the consensus that lf boards will peal pretty easy and have a white top deck? what about others? cwb, gator, hype?

I think the board in the photo is a cwb, so they must come off. I know older LF boards do
