    You can do that by using a wide ski and cutting it in the shape of a board and you dont need a press.

    How did you press your board? Looks great! I am building longboards for my whole family and I would love to know how you did this one. Thanks

    it's strong. i just got my trucks for it and have been skating it for a few weeks now. i didn't glue it on end to end, i cut the end of the panel off and glued it flat on top. (carefully matched up the stripes) so that the last little bit was twice as thick. then i cut and sanded away every thing that didn't look like a kick tail. no bending involved.
