Made 2 longboards for my girlfriend and her sister. The other one was made a while back for myself. They picked their design and my girlfriend woodburned designs on the boards. I glued 4 1/16 in pieces of birch plywood together to make the boards. Went cruising in San Diego and they work great!

Beem, sweet rides bro. I have made about 20 of them and love riding them down at the Beach.

What kind of wheels and trucks you using? I have been using revenge Trucks and experimenting with different wheels. I used Baker for a while but he was really hard to deal with and rude. Boss Hawg’s are my fav’s there really fast. I use Abec 7 bearings.

I use a spray on grip powder that I LOVE, called Lucid. Very easy to use and doesn’t cover the art or wood grain on boards and easy to touch up.

Love the designs your GF did a great job.
Heres a cpl of mine

The boards look really sweet.
Looks like everybody is happy.

Where is the best place to get the wheel assembly’s ?

- Ken90712-
That is some very nice work! I used radius trucks and wheels package w/ abec 7 bearings on ebay because it is the cheapest package I could find. they work great for how much I ride (just a cruise every once in a while).

How much are revenge trucks and where did you get them? I would like to experiment with other trucks and wheels as well to find the right one.

I use lucid grip as well! I love the stuff, but it gets expensive if you do a lot of boards. I have been trying to think of what to use as a replacement. salt maybe. or find a way to grind up glass really small.

Bigkahunaranch- I get the trucks and wheels from ebay. They are radius trucks. It is the best deal I could find.

#11 posted 06-30-2015 01:29 AM They have some trucks on sale for 28 a pair I bought 20 pair last time on sale. I’ll look into the ones you use. I think they sell that lucid in bulk but a fine micro sand would work as we’ll I’m thinking.
