How to Make a Longboard

August 2, 2016


This week I’m updating my longboard video from a few years back (2013). In order to make this longboard, you will need 1 sheet of 1/4″ thick plywood that measures 2’x4′. I went ahead and cut the sheet of plywood up into 3 strips that were 8″ wide and 48″ long. From here, I glued up all 3 pieces to make one solid board that had an arch in the middle. I achieved this by placing a 2×4 on each end and a heavy object in the middle. Once the board was dry, I added my template to the board with some spray adhesive and cut it out with a jigsaw. I gave the board a nice sanding and then sealed the entire board with some clear coat. This will help keep the board from rotting away after a long period of time. I then added stickers to cover the entire bottom (instead of painting the board). After that I added grip tape as well as the trucks and I was off riding. If you would like to make your own, I’ve included a template below!

1- 2’x4′ Sheet of 1/4″ Thick Plywood

1- Bottle of Wood Glue

1- Can of Spar Urethane (Waterproof Finish)
