Skateboards ??
« on: June 24, 2021, 10:20:05 PM »
Its a stand up thing!
 Been making some skateboards again. The SUPs are too much work and take up too much time.
 Using cork as the core. Some carbon,flax or glass in there. I have loads of wood left so might as well use it.
 Might make some balance boards as well. Made some ages ago and gave them to friends.

Nice craftsmanship Tarquin.
What’s the purpose of the cork core?

It gives an unobtainably superior awesomeness!!
 Had loads left. The boards are pretty light and it must give some sort of dampening. A few people have mentioned how smooth the ride is.

Sweet.  I repurposed a diy kiteboard to a skateboard deck for riding in the rain.  The board had antifatigue mats on the deck.  I was surprised at how comfortable having dampening on the deck was compared to grip tape.  Cork sounds perfect.

Beautiful boards.

But to really enjoy them swap out the front truck for one of the truly loose new technologies.

Got some coming. Not that brand. They are not a full on surf truck but they say they can still be pumped.
