    It's a blem/mark/dirt/messedupthing/whatever on the graphic that doesn't make it ultra sparkly shiny pretty.

    blem is short for blemish. The graphic (picture) on the bottom of the board is blemished and not perfect in some way.

    It can really be anything, but graphic blem means it's on the graphic side of the board.
    Which is the bottom.
    Blem = Unwanted spot on the picture/graphic.

    Go wipe your ass with a 20 dollar bill and tell me if it's worth it or not.

    Do you care alot about the design? Remember, if you mount your trucks right, the graphic should be on the bottom, so personally I'd do it.

    just buy it, if you ride the board properly there wont be much of a recognizable graphic in a few months anyways. To abuse is to love...
    (well at least with longboards)
    Ride what you Love, and Love what you Have.

    Its probably something you wouldn't even notice if you weren't told it was there. Its not going to end up being blank.

    mines been scratched from bouncing over curbs, flying into the woods (it like adventures), riding in the truck, failed tricks, and idk what else but it just tends to get messed up one way or another

    If you are concerned, ask whoever you are buying from for a picture of the bottom of the deck, blem's are pretty much a hookup
