Roarockit Skateboard School!

THE WORLD'S FIRST PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARD BUILDING SCHOOL

Roarockit offers building programs, designed for you to build your dream board! Choose to make a skate deck, pintail, Lil'Rockit (mini-cruiser) or a more advanced drop deck. With an experienced insructor to show you the steps and share all the builder’s tricks and tips, you will produce a seriously awesome board the very first time, and will be able to continue making boards with your new-found knowledge.

Using the best wood in the world for a skateboard (Canadian maple), you’ll learn how to laminate a 3 dimensional board in a Thin Air Press, finish it, design and apply your own graphics (graphics on week long sessions only). Using Roarockit’s patented method, your quality board will be entirely hand-made, using the power of vacuum, no power tools required.
