These kits are designed in association with Open Source Skateboards to provide the necessary materials to complete workshops given by Open Source.

Select either the Street Deck Kit or the Longboard version to receive all the parts you need for your builder's program.

The foam mold, Thin Air Press Bag and pump, edging tool and breather netting are designed to be used for many, many builds.

Keep all your reusable kit parts in good working order by following the maintenance tips included with the kit.

Using uncut sheets of veneer, plywood backer boards and external clamps can puncture a Thin Air Press bag. Treat your TAP bag with care, inspect regularly for holes.

Q: What else do I need to make a board with this kit?
A: A jigsaw (or bandsaw) to trim out the pressed board.

Q: How radical a shape will the maple veneers bend around?
A: If you can bend it with your hands, it will bend in the Thin Air Press. Best way to check is to do a DRY RUN, stack your veneer on the mold and press it in the TAP bag.
