Mountain boarding is a sport derived from snowboarding. Mountain boarding is also called all-terrain boarding. Although mountain boarding is considered a sport in itself, professional snowboarders often use mountain boards during the off season to maintain their physical shape and endurance. Riders often customise their mountain boards to personalise them, as they use them quite frequently.

Things you need
- 1/2-inch socket
- Old deck
- Shock trucks
- Freestyle bindings
- All-terrain wheels
Take the existing mountain board and remove the bindings and trucks. Take the trucks apart by removing the nuts using a socket and wrench. The all terrain deck should now be clear of all attachments.
Take the board to a local snowboarding and skateboarding store. Inquire about a custom design. While some may be expensive, others can create a large adhesive design, almost like a sticker, that can be placed on a wooden mountain board, for a fair price.
Paint the board at home and decorate it with stickers, if the above option is not feasible. To paint the board, sandpaper the entire board smooth and apply a base coat of solid colour paint. Let the board dry before attaching the stickers on to the board. Despite the method of designing and customisation, ensure the style is one that fits your individual skating style.
Add new trucks and bindings to the mountain board. When a mountain board is purchased, it often comes with standard factory bindings and trucks. Replacing the standard trucks and shock trucks and the bindings with freestyle bindings will provide the rider with a new riding experience.
Install the new trucks and bindings using the same nuts as was used to hold the old trucks and bindings in place. Use the same socket and wrench to install the new additions.
Install new wheels on the board for another method of customisation. Since the wheels are used in all types of terrain, they often wear down fast. Installing new wheels can often provide a new riding experience for avid users of the mountain board. Check the wheel packaging in terms of installation instructions; however, often the wheels are installed using a wrench and a screwdriver.
