Ever since creating the first deck, I've taken a keen interest in making longboard decks. Not only that, I've been using the varienty of ways to enhance the longboard deck. One of those ways is pyrography.
The longboard deck is made from seven 1/16 Canadian hard maple veneers that were glued and pressed together in a vacuum press. The process was first developed by Ted Hunter from www.roarockit.com. And that was the easy part.
The design was provided by the client and centred between the wheelbase. Even though it looks simple, it took a lot of time and patience to ensure that each of the swirls is completed accurately and has a similar thickness. With pyrography you get only one chance and patience and dedication paid off.
The board is finished with six coats of exterior varnish to provide ample protection against the elements. In addition, the exterior varnish has UV inhibitors that prevent the cured film from breaking down. The longboard has clear grip tape on top of the board to provide safe footing for the rider.
The deck is a regular top mount pintale deck. The longboard is furnished with brand new Paris Trucks and flywheels.
An excellent choise for a very first longboard.
