Hey, I just had a random ass question, Is it fine to put stickers on the bottom of your board, or will people think it's stupid? it doesn't seem like it would mess up your riding... I have a ****load of stickers and ran out of places to put them. Just wondering, Thanks!

P.S. this is my first post so I have no idea what to expect or if I even did this right lol

Most vinyl decals would come off or at least start to tear away after a couple rides. Top sheet your good but the skimming would mess them up quick.

May I recommend a collection added to your bedroom wall? A la high school in the 90's

Seems a little overboard to me, no pun intended.

Who cares what "people" think of YOUR board?

Who cares, stick them on there, if they come off, they come off.

Technically speaking, they "should" be ok. The speed of the water relative to the bottom of your board is "theoretically" zero, as friction creates a "no slip" condition on the wetted surface with a parabolic velocity distribution that is increasing from zero as you approach the free stream velocity. The scale of this sorta varies and there will be turbulence that is introduced, there are a few other parameters that I am not accounting for, but hey, they are stickers
This is essentially why you typically feel less wind when you lie on the ground vs. standing up and is also why windmills are up high

Woooooo science!
