This is a cool video that demonstrates the craftsmanship behind the creation a longboard. The process is long and tedious but the final product is magical. There are dozens of methods used to create a deck but every method requires a mold, veneer, glue and a press, unless you start with pre-fab plywood. I have seen some of the most ghetto presses you could imagine that actually work – and elaborate, well thought out designs that completely fail. The best longboard deck takes on many shape changes and modifications before the perfect final product is produced. Keep this in mind when you take your next cruise. The magical deck that you skate went through this process and is designed to skate fast. Shred on.
