This is a longboard skateboard. This one is made for cruising!

We went with a surfboard shape and paint scheme. It is made from 2x cutoffs laminated together on the edges and planed to about 5/8” thick. I fiberglassed the bottom for strength. I used simple latex paint, wiped on, for the color. We made a logo to put on it for the classic surfboard look. The top is finished with spray lacquer and the black stripes are grip tape for added traction. It is 48” in length.

The trucks and wheels purchased from Amazon. Not the best of quality but will definitely work for beating down the street or trail for some fun and exercise!

Thanks for looking!
