Want to get around town this summer without your parents having to drive you everywhere? Build a longboard with us! In this week long course students will build their very own classic, pintail longboard. We'll build our boards from scratch using maple wood veneer and a simple wood press. Using hand tools and a little bit of sweat we'll shape and sand our new boards. Once that new deck is looking smooth and just the way you want, we'll customize the decks with spray paint and stencils for a little bit of style. Next it's all about putting on our trucks, wheels, and grip tape. And finally, after all that hard work, we'll take our finished boards out for a test run for a safety check and to carve up the sidewalks. Students must have a helmet to test their boards the last day of class. No prerequisites required.
