Any season is a great season for skateboarding. This is our longest running workshop and is open to all ages. We do ask that your child have the ability to hold attention though an 8 hour workshop. This workshop is jam packed and we break down 16 hours into 2 days ( occasionally they run quicker, but occasionally we need the entire time to complete the package ).
Here are some of the tools and skills experienced through the shop :
• adhesives and glue-ups
• measuring, layout, and design
• drill press
• band saw (demo only)
• sanding - hand sanding, wide belt sanding, edge sander (this one will be demo only)
• finishing applications including sand grit.
Each process above is not necessarily in a specific order. We will spend time explaining the purpose and application of each tool. By the end of the workshop you'll be ready to dash out the door on your new deck (unfortunately you'll have to wait a day for the finish to cure. Remember to head over to the SUPPLY LIST page in the drop down menu along with the DETAILS page so that you know what you'll need. We also send out a bulk message one week and a few days prior to the start date. Remember to bring beverages and snacks to get through the day (we do have a clean water dispenser in the shop).
If you are interested in a specific type of skate deck / long board, head to the end of the SIGN-UP page and send in an inquiry for 'Workshops'. We DO have the capablities of vacuum press, which is required for concave shapes.
