you need to flip your front truck
This is cool. Nothing against you, but for the contest limits, this is excellent. But for riding, doing tricks, and ramps this might break easily especially on grinds. Overall, for what you used, this is AWESOME!
Very cool design, but would it be possible to make a concave shape to it and a kick tail? if not this is still a cool DIY project
 thinking about that as well, maybe if you clamped it with something underneath so that it had a concave shape.
One of my friends did that :) It works!
you would need a vacuum press to make the tail(and nose if you wanted) im not sure about pressing plexiglass though
ur dogs real cute

Good eye sir... if you look the trucks arn't even bolted in place, this pictures was taken when the board was still in the mock-up stage. The reason I went with cardboard was because it was for a contest where the materials where limited to cardboard and gorilla glue.
i wanna make this for a grass board
