Product Description:

SK8Makers City Cruiser

“The SK8Makers City Cruiser is a fun-to-ride skateboard designed for getting around town, especially for beginners who are just learning to ride a skateboard or old-timers like me who aren't in it for the tricks. For these reasons it's become the most popular board shape students produce in my DIY skateboard workshops.”

Matt Berger of SK8Makers is the author of "The Handmade Skateboard", a timeless guide to designing and building your own custom longboard, cruiser, or street skateboard from scratch. Through his book and workshops, Matt has inspired countless builders to make their own handmade boards. Since the first SK8Makers workshop in Los Angeles, CA in 2013, Matt has graduated hundreds of students with a diploma in the form of a custom skateboard.


Rêverie Woodworks Commuter Longboard

“I designed this board with the intent of having a commuter board for any skill level. Added a slight camber, concave shape to the board for added control and comfort. Great for carving and avoiding city street obstacles or for nice flowing carves on city paths.”

Patrick Jérôme is a firefighter by day and a woodworker by night! Patrick started his woodworking journey over a decade ago with a Roarockit longboard kit. Along the way, he has become a huge inspiration to fellow hobbyist woodworkers, documenting his process on Instagram. Patrick brings fresh ideas to the world of longboard design with his fine woodworking background.


Good Roads Collective Freeride Longboard

“This freeride deck was fine tuned to the constraints and advantages of vac-bag pressing to get you the best out of the box, DIY freeride longboard experience possible. A pleasure to ride, this symmetrical shape gives you a nice wide platform, wheelbase options, comfortable kicktails, and wheel flares to eliminate wheel bite and make it easier to initiate turns. Additionally, if you want to flex your creative muscles, the deck is shaped to double as a generous blank that you can cut into any number of different decks for different styles of riding.”

Chris McCann is a huge contributor to the DIY community with his informative Youtube tutorials, open-source project files, and custom tools, making board building more accessible to everyone! Chris works hard to help expand the DIY board building space by teaching builders how to create their own wheels, bushings, and even more.

*We recommend pressing this board in two stages and using a backer board to achieve the best possible shape.


Open Source Skateboards Dancer Longboard

“Using input from the local longboard dancing community, we developed a board with all the features to create the best deck for riders of any level. This symmetrical, mellow design with a bit of rocker provides a stable, comfortable platform for dancing. The tapered midsection and subtle wheel flares improve the board’s maneuverability, providing a unique, yet familiar feel that allows you to explore and express your style. Use birch veneer for a lighter, more flexible ride, or maple for a stiffer, more responsive ride.”

Beau Trifiro is a skateboarder, a builder, an educator, and more! Beau founded Open Source Skateboards as a way to empower creativity through skateboarding. Creating tools for skaters and builders, providing board design and build services, and running board building workshops and online tutorials, are just some of the ways he helps the board building community.
