A quick taste of some of my longboards. These aren’t all of the boards i’ve made..i only take pictures when i feel like it haha ;-)

pic 1-for a friend, i faded it from white to purple, and put hexagon grip tape pieces on top, it looks amazing!

pic2/3- some of my boards. on the left is my trick deck/backup. on the right is my baby, i absolutely love this board. solid poplar, just a little flex, slight camber, perfect board for me. rides like a dream :)

pic 4-custom Live oak and mahogany trucks. they actually work really good, and they’re all wood, the only metal on it is the axle. i will definitely be experimenting with this ALOT more, they really cool, and i’m pretty sure i’m the first/only person to do this.

pic 5-one of my early boards, still ride it today :)

any questions/comments are welcome.

Wow, wood trucks? That’s pretty ballzy. I’ve never made a solid deck before. It’s certainly on my to-do list.
Nice job!

i would definitely look into a solid deck, theyre pretty cool, and feel a bit different than ply

David, the wood trucks have held up great to about a month of riding! and when turning, it raises the board up and turns, so it would be great for drop decks too!
