Custom Longboard

The boys enjoy Longboarding. For those of you who don't know, basically it's just an extra long skateboard but whatever you do DO NOT call it a skateboard. I get corrected quite often.

They come in all colors and designs. Alex's was yellow and looked like this...


I'm not sure how it came up but Alex wanted a new design. He thought it would be cool to have a Skate Longboard that looked like Eddie Van Halen's guitar.


So Mark got to work.. I wish I would have captured some pictures of the process.. sanding, painting, taping, more painting..etc.

Here is a picture of it almost completed.



And here is the finished product! Alex loves it!

Good longboards!!!!!! But Why hasn't longboarding caught on in the skater circles? I had a Dreggs (sp?) when i was younger and i could do some decent stuff because it was short enough, but i also had a much larger one

Hey I’m new to long boards like many, but have no clue what brand, flex, size, etc. I should be looking at. I am currently in University and would like something to get around campus (sometimes can get a little crowded so I might need something that can maneuver well) but also something to cruise with, to get from one spot to the next (usually kilometers apart). I am 6 feet tall if that helps haha. I would appreciate any advice considering I’m kind of lost.
