“The Handmade Skateboard is the definitive book on building custom skate decks of all shapes and sizes, from the high-performance street deck to the classic longboard to a vintage pinstripe cruisers that will turn heads everywhere you go. When you make your own skateboard from scratch you have the opportunity to create something that is perfectly tailored to you: a deck that matches your height, your weight, your center of balance, your skill level and your intended use. More importantly, making your own skate deck allows you to design a perfect deck to fit your personal style, making a statement about who you are.”

We worked closely with Matt for an extended period of time sharing our experiences and board building methods to help contribute to this incredible project. Not only does he extensively cover our Thin Air Press vacuum bag method of board building (Chapters 6 and 7), but the book goes over the history of skateboard making and has lots of great interviews and features of people in the industry.

This 150+ page book is available on our online store for $24.95, and can be bundled with board building tools and materials to really help get you started!

Book looks very interesting! I started to skate when I was six years old. I even had complete equipment and I was eager to hit the pavement. Now, it will be a great idea to build some custom skateboard in homage to good old times.
