Love riding your longboard skateboard but don't like carrying and traveling with it with because of the awkward and large size? Keep reading and I'll show you how to cut your longboard's size in half for traveling while keeping its nice and large wheel base for riding. I was able to convert my 42" board into 24" for travel, easily fitting into a carry-on suitcase or duffel bag!
Things you'll need:
Complete longboard setup
2 door hinges + screws
miter saw/table saw/ hand saw/ jig saw
I know, I know, cutting your board in half seems like heresy, but we'll make it work! depending on your truck size and geometry, try and figure out at which point you'll need to cut the board. If you cut the board directly halfway between the trucks, when you fold it together, the trucks are going to hit each other. I chose a little off center about 3/5's and made the cut there, that way when the board is folded, the trucks don't hit each other and folds flatter.
I made the cut using a miter saw which was fairly easy, but you could also get away with a hand saw, jig saw, or table saw, just work within your comfort zone!
