heres a little summet i put together just latel.47inches long....curved 10ply maple swallow tail deck with retro 80s 10 inch trucks on 55mm californian red smoking wheels with waterproof bearings(not that it will ever get wet).....it is a bit slow on the turns but its lovely and smooth to ride..



now all i need is a hill......as its a bit flat where i dwell.

How did you get the curve?
MDF former?

Looking nice and a classic shape,way better than those blunt stubby looking affairs :?


That shed is in dire need of a bit of varnish :evil:

it came with a curve already...you can have the choice of a straight board with no curve or you can have it bowed like mine.got the board from a fella in london who makes custom boards....i liked the swallow tail shape as it reminds me ofthe old surfboard i used to have...

Nice board, I have one gathering dust under the bed! It cost me three days off work and 6 xrays of my hand! I can take the pain and the injuries! It's being told by someone just out of puberty that at my age I should know better than to play on a skateboard! Is it just me or doctors and nurses getting younger?
