Niche Snowboards, that cool company making snowboards out of eco-friendly materials, now lets you download its board graphics as a facebook cover photo, sized and ready to go. So if you dig what they are all about and love the artwork of Zosia Olenska or Michael Sieben, you’re going to want to get your hands on one.
