Most longboards are made of wood. I wanted something unique so I made mine of aluminum. The aluminum deck is flexible but strong. The entire longboard weighs only 4 kg and is therefore very light!

The idea for the aluminum longboard came from this website: http://bionicgirlnyc.com/2011/03/20/cindrich-aluminum-longboards/
-120 cm of stainless steel bars
-12 aluminum strips of 1 meter (10 strips of 2cm wide and 2 strips of 1,5 cm wide)
-2 pieces of wood
Step 1: Sawing wood to attach the trucks
Copy the holes of the trucks and shape the rest of the wooden pieces as you like. They form the tail and the nose of the deck.
I used multiplex.
