The graphics aren't my style but if other like them that's cool.
I do find the 03 142 graphics to be scary in that I'm not quite sure what HL was thinking when they approved those graphics. Putting an image of someone that looks a whole lot like a German soldier burning a bunch of dead people is pretty tasteless imo.
I don't remember any one getting upset about the 2003 byerly graphic but i do remember people getting upset about the 2000 142 limited one (if you look at the board review now it shows a similar limited graphic as the 137) I CANT FIND A PIC ANYWHERE!!! I did a search even and only found a phrase where someone said they would post a pic of it but never did. It's the one that says hyperlite in splattered blood on one side and has a chick that looks like she belongs in a reef add cutting off a guys head with a guillotine. I am pretty sure there is a pic i could scan from the Wakeboard magazine buyers guide, but most of my mags are at my parents' house. If someone can post the pic please do!!!!!!!!! because if any graphic is scary it is a graphic like that... the next thing i think of when i think of that graphic is lorena bobbitt...;)
here is ALL the pics for your enjoyment gathered from wake world
f.y.i. i only loaded one of the '08 byerly legacy because the only difference in graphic is slight differentiations in wood grain. I think it is also kind of kool how you can see the evolution of picture quality, board shape and other such things through the years
In my opinion, besides the bloody 2000 limited board, the 2001 137 is by far the MOST SCARIEST Byerly graphic... why? because it is totaly not your average byerly graphic. It makes me want to think that some drunk bass fisher broke into the factory and switched byerly's graphic. It is scary that such a cartoony, whimpy, fishy lure could make its way on the boards. by far the ugliest graphic too IMO
